Inclusive Design innovation- Devising technological solutions for the physically handicapped during rehabilitation process.This year’s course will take place with collaboration with Intel, RealSense and TOM nonprofit organization.During the course we will encourage creative thinking that integrates end user needs with the goal of coming up with unique, original, elegant and efficient solutions.The course is a substantial simulation of the complete design process, from research stage, specification and definition all the way to developing and designing a real world product. Course objective:The development and design of a product and/or service, incorporating advanced technologies, for handicapped users undergoing rehabilitation process at the Hadassa hospital. Course process:During the course, several disciplines central to designer’s responsibilities will be incorporated, all with the goal of improving the user experience and efficiency of the rehabilitation process. During the course, mentors from Intel and Hadassa Hospital will be supporting the students in identifying latent user needs and the fluency of utilizing cutting edge technology that will lead to an optimal user experience.The students will have a coordinated access to field study at the Hadassa rehabilitation department, the patients and the care givers- all in order to receive the inspiration that will nurture their design process. Course stages:Contextual learning, user research, synthesis and extracting insights, establishment of user scenarios, ideation, testing ideas with the users, product characterization, development, design and presentation. Technologies that will be supported during the course:The course will expose us to VR, AR, Sensoring, Arduino, 3D printing and Gaming tools, among others. The exposure to RealSense technology will be made through demos and support throughout the course
