CardioLab minisymposium

31 October 2018 09:30 till 13:00 - By: Communication

The availability of a massive amount of data in the early stages of diseases changes the way designers can contribute to dedicated products and services. This is exactly what the CardioLab research programme aims for. In order to develop a vision on how (data-driven) design can build a bridge between the cardio field and technology, the CardioLab is organising a symposium on Wednesday 31 October. Everyone with an interest in this area is welcome to join.

Cardiovascular disease is the world’s most important cause of death. There is still much to gain in terms of treating and preventing cardiovascular disease. Long-term monitoring of heart patients, for example, can help to limit the detrimental effects of the disease. This is why the Dutch Heart Foundation, Philips Design and TU Delft decided to join forces and work together in the CardioLab.

CardioLab works on smart, data-driven innovations that will improve the quality of life for heart patients, and give medical specialists and other care workers a better insight into a patient’s condition.

Data-driven solutions make it possible to analyse data relating to people in the high-risk group (high blood pressure, obesity, smokers). Cardiovascular diseases can be detected, and possibly treated, sooner. Graduation projects, amongst others  are available.

The symposium entitled ‘How could design be the bridge between the cardiovascular domain & smart technologies?’ takes place on Wednesday 31 October from 09:30-13:00 in the Wim Crouwel room of the IDE faculty.
