The state of human health is evolving. In many countries people are enjoying longer lives.

But this increase in longevity is coupled with an increase in chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease which may have gone undiagnosed in the past. The high costs of healthcare and the need for more medical staff already poses a challenge. However emerging digital technologies offer the potential for more responsive, personalised healthcare.

At the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering (IDE) our research brings a human-centered design approach to the domains of prevention, care and cure. We have a particular research interest in autonomous ageing, the patient care and the patient journey How can people live healthy and socially meaningful lives? How can we make healthcare services accessible to all?
