Design, and especially participatory design, is an approach that creates partnership between people with healthcare needs, healthcare workers and designers.
People facing any kind of temporary or permanent diseases, knowing what it means to live with their specific condition, cannot be considered as just end users but must be actors involved actively in the process of ideation and definition of the product/service that best suits their specific needs.
The materials collected in this page are aimed to offer a first glimpse of inspiring application of this open-source practical know-how.
Stories, news and events are accessible on this platform, both online and offline. In our Resources section you have always access to downloadable materials, and on each resource you will find instructions on how to make good use of them. Use cases are a selection of careables that we believe are representative of good careable principles: well designed, in terms of process, and well documented. You can read them on Welder.app website, where all careables are stored. By exploring their documentation and other features you can get a practical sense of what means to deal with careables’ practical issues and potential.
