#23 – A Designer walks into a Hospital - Maaike Kleinsmann
How can design research improve our health, and is it better to design for prevention or for the cure? We kick off our triptych on Design & Health with Delft Design Professor Maaike Kleinsmann. Ianus and co-host Marc talk with her about working with healthcare professionals as a design researcher, what all this new remote-sensing health-tech for consumers means for personal health challenges and the issue of health data and privacy. And dealing with Strava-men in tight lycra suits.
Professor Kleinsmann is initiator and/or contributor of several large-scale health research projects in The Netherlands, including Healthy Start, the E-Health Living Lab and the Delft Design Cardiolab.
