Designing for Lymphedema Patients

In the Design Thinking course, students from the MSPI-program and the Mechanical Engineering MSc program have explored issues relating to diagnosis and treatment of Lymphedema. Based on need analysis, ideation, and a prototyping approach, the students have developed concepts for how to address these issues, focusing on merging user desirability, with feasibility and viability from a business perspective.

Design Thinking EXPO 2016

The Mechanical Engineering and MSPI students in the Design Thinking course presented their projects and final prototypes. The students have been working in start-up mode with problems that they have defined by themselves. One team focused on recycling in public areas and environments and the other team has focused on possible ways to prevent bike theft.
