Designed Intelligence: Data for Feedback (DI-D4F)

Main research interest (DSC/e related)

As more and more "everyday life" data are collected through sensors embedded in personal tools, accessories and wearables, it becomes increasingly important to give appropriate meaning to those data, extract the essence and visualize them. In our view, it is important to give those data back to the users and make them accessible for purposes of self-management and bio-feedback.   

We explore novel societally relevant applications of smart garments, algorithmically designed garments, parametric design, human-patient simulators, life-style management tools and bio-feedback systems. Our vision is to combine aesthetics and meaningful data, often in physical form.

 

 

Success stories

Our work on the smart jacket and Origo (with Philips), contributed to the construction of a world-class research ecosystem in perinatology.   

The heart bloom biofeedback system was shown at Dutch Design Week (DDW) and Dubai Design week. 

In the Do CHANGE project we develop a health ecosystem for integrated disease management for hypertensive and cardiac patients. more information
