At the Open Health HACKademy, four interdisciplinary teams with students from different disciplines, people with disabilities and Makers jointly develop open-source hardware solutions, so-called Careables. Because many people with disabilities lack the tools they need to live and work.

The development teams are accompanied and supported by experienced coaches from the fields of electronic prototyping, coding, digital fabrication and design thinking.

The upcoming Open Health HACKademy will take place at the Workshops of TU Berlin from 27th of September to 6th October 2019.
