This is a cluster of projects. The foremost project is IOP/IPCR ‘Design for well-being’: transformative design strategies and tools for disruptive design processes. The design for premature babies is a key case study. New technology like smart textiles will replace painful and disturbing classical electrodes. In another project, a smart patient support system is developed. Award-winning graduation student Misha Croes developed the FamilyArizing design including a parent’s necklace, mediated communication and a smart snuggle for the neonate.
