Chronic Health: It's only human?
Live a long and happy life. How can we achieve that in the future? We are living longer, but the way we want to live calls for more and different healthcare. Everything is technologically possible today. We can, in theory, develop a pill, a chip or a new body part for almost every condition. And many procedures are already carried out more efficiently by robots than by people. But does that make us happy?
The power of design
To determine the quality of ‘new healthcare’ together, it helps to imagine the future. That’s what designers do best. Let us harness their powers of imagination in our quest to find a new balance between technology and nature, between perfection and imperfection, between formal and informal healthcare.
