PATIENT GENERATED DATA
LIFE SCIENCES PROTOTYPING
DIGITAL FABRICATION PROTOTYPING
The disparities in affordable healthcare technology are a growing part of increasing healthcare costs globally. This course aims to teach affordable prototyping and design strategies for health technology and medicine that can be applied to improve patient care in a variety of settings: both low-income and high-income economies, at patients' homes and in hospitals.
Using Patient-Generated Data Devices as a learning model, students will design affordable devices that are used by patients to manage their health. Using Construction Sets for Health as a strategy, students will explore the diversity of possibilities that can be applied when patients are empowered to design their own solutions. Students will participate in a team project in one of four design/mentor tracks, supported by lectures and hands-on labs.
