2016 ACM. This article, presents a smartphone game app for Android devices where the user must blow into the microphone to control the sprite's movements as opposed to tapping. The game also encompasses a questionnaire and web based data tracking system, that is targeted at adult Cystic Fibrosis patients. App data is stored on an external database and saved under a user's profile. The data is then analysed for the attention of the health care team and depending on specified alert criteria, an alert text message (SMS) is sent to the patient. The complete system was presented to the CF medical multidisciplinary team for review and feedback. Usability testing on the mobile application and web tool was also conducted with 10 participants who specialise in usability design. It is anticipated, that this framework will have a positive effect to the health care experience of adult CF patients after passing the clinical testing.
