Design4Health two papers accepted

These days I am preparing for my attendance at the Design4Health conference in Sheffield.  At the Design4Living Lab at Sheffield-Hallam University the conference and community have been established since 2011 – to host the fifth annual conference in September.

This is an interesting community as at combines the advantages of design with health. My two research contributions, that I ll present at the conference 4-6 September 2018 – will be in regards of my PhD project, “Intimacy, Accessory Design and Wearable Health Devices”.

The first paper will be about a teaching project I facilitated in October, at Design School Kolding. Together with Peta Bush, Sarah Kettley and Jack Cunningham, nine accessory design students worked on a brief together with four Sahva clients. Sahva is the Danish Orthoses and Prostheses company – and they were interested in how they could benefit from accessory design, to create personal devices for their clients.

The outcome of the paper will be released after the conference, and I am happy to share the results. Stay tuned.

The other paper is about Coloplast, and their new product development of ostomy care. Here the paper reflects what happens when a habitual product meets the personal needs of the wearers to discuss if an ostomy bag even can be seen as a fashion accessory?

I look forward to present to you the papers!

Have a great summer.
