„How do tangible decision aids support the doctor-client interaction during a vaccination advice?"
Models help to present, organize, explain and understand different information and facilitate decisions. Although the haptic perception relieves cognitive processes demonstrably the potential of three-dimensional models remains mostly unused compared to visual and linguistic explanatory forms, not only in medical decision-making. This is especially true when it comes to complex information such as medical data. Therefore, the design of tangible models as decision aids aims to take account of the haptics in the decision making process. Using the example of HPV vaccination advice prototypical tests show that model objects support the doctor-client interaction and can help in understanding, evaluating and deciding.
