During the 'MakeHealth: Prototyping' series, we'll be developing open design applications for healthcare together. Would you like to design a 3D-printed finger splint, DIY headlights for a wheelchair, or a custom tricycle? Are you a designer, an experiential expert, a healthcare professional, or an informal carer with a great idea for a healthcare solution? Everyone is welcome and participation is free. At Fablab Amsterdam our experts will help you through the process of taking a project from design to completion over eight weeks.
You'll be working in a team on a concrete question once per week (each Thursday) over an eight week period. This question could be about developing a new solution to a problem or improving an existing tool. You'll make use of our digital manufacturing tools in Fablab Amsterdam and we'll teach you how they work. Our experts will be ready to assist you with specific questions and technical challenges.
The development will take place over a series of eight Thursday evenings starting on Thursday 17 May. All meetings will take place in the Waag in both english and dutch.
Participation in the 'MakeHealth: Prototyping' series is free. You can sign up for the complete series via the link below. Prior knowledge of digital manufacturing and technology is not required as we'll focus on this during the workshops. However, we do expect you to attend all the workshops, so that your team have enough time to complete their project.
