The development of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) incessantly extends the scope of medical services which have been carried out in the limited space and time domain. As to stroke patients, for instance, both caregivers and patients could not obtain sufficient supports from their medical staff, thereby joining other online communities from which they can get other practical advice.
We tried to analyze the current rehabilitation activity systems for stroke patients with Activity Theory and found some design implications, which were addressed by a new artifact called RehabMaster ‘Mobile’. This allowed us to suggest a design method that is able to develop a socio-technical system through design tensions and contradictions.
