Waag's Paulien Melis takes part in a panel discussion on social innovation in healthcare during Medica (world forum for medicine) in Düsseldorf on Thursday, November 21. Focus will be on critical dialogue about our current system of tools and care solutions.
Using the online platform Careables as an example, Paulien explains how open healthcare solutions are valuable for healthcare. Careables is the open hardware platform developed within the Made4You project. The platform is a gathering place of open care solutions that citizens can reproduce or adapt themselves.
