The aim of the Healthcare programme is to generate design requirements and methods for the design of products that focus on the medical professional, the medical environment and the patient. The focus is on human-product interaction during product use. This programme translates knowledge and skills into design guidelines for medical product concepts in medical systems. The goal is to improve the effectiveness, usability, safety and economical feasibility of products and systems.
All research is divided into three themes:
- The Specialist (error-free task fulfillment for the specialist)
- The Environment (influence the patient’s well-being through external factors)
- The Patient (apply biomechanical modeling in design processes)
