These days I am located in Skive, Denmark at Krabbeshom – a pre-course for art, design and architecture students.
I am writing a journal article, which has just been accepted for the Material Design Journal.
After my visit to Coloplast in Humlebæk, Denmark – I have started to unfold my research subject an ‘Accessory Approach’ towards designing wearable health technologies.
In this case Coloplast has designed SenSura Mio – a product line for ostomy patients, with inspiration from fashion and textile design. That is quite unique as most wearable health devices are designed within a biomedical model (Bush, 2015)
This is not the case at Coloplast – a medico company that works with ostomy patients sense of self – to design aesthetic and appealing products. That is new, bold and interesting to look into – and as a PhD student you have great privilege and obligation: the privilege to pay attention to what you consider worthy of attention and the obligation to make conclusions drawn from those choices meaningful to colleagues and clients.
I’ll post a link to the article when its published ultimo this year!
