Our goal is to address the current challenges of uptake and use of new innovations by service users, commissioners, providers, and clinical teams. The group will adopt principles of inclusive, user-centred design of devices and testing programmes.
Well-designed technologies have great potential to meet service need and the development of new rehabilitation technologies aligns with national policy on person-centred care for those with long-term conditions.
One such project is our work in developing a prototype walking device for people with stroke, alongside clinicians, service users, engineers, academics, and the Design Council UK.
