After suffering serious brain injuries, Scott Routley spent 12 years in a vegetative state. But his family were convinced that he was still aware – could a pioneering ‘mind-reading’ technique prove them right?

Talk by Anne Cooper at Collaborate Bristol 2017
The Complexities of UX Design in Health Settings and the Impact of Human Factors
This session explores the complexities of UX design in health settings with a particular focus on clinical safety, risk and human factors.
Anne gives real life examples and explains the importance of excellent UX design in the health context.

Collaborate Bristol is organised by Nomensa - the strategic UX design experts.
As storms raged through Oklahoma in 2013, Martha Lillard waited them out from inside her iron lung. She is one of just dozens of polio survivors who still rely on their decades-old machines.
This episode was reported and produced by Julia Scott. It was hosted for this episode of Transistor by Genevieve Sponsler and mixed for Transistor by Erika Lantz.

A careen through grassroots innovation, speculative design, supply chains and sexual healthcare provision, lashing down over-caffeinated flailing into the grit of socio-technical systems.
Georgina Voss is a writer and researcher working on the interplay of technology, politics and culture. She sometimes writes for The Guardian, and she’s currently in residence at the lovely Lighthouse Arts right here in Brighton working on a design fiction project that asks “what could digital fabrication and hyper-local manufacturing offer to the provision of sexual healthcare?”
She also holds a doctorate from Sussex Uni, so that’s Doctor Georgina Voss to you.
George has a knack for exposing the networks underlying the most normal-seeming activities. Usually “logistics” isn’t a word that conjures up much excitement, but George can make you look at shipping containers in a whole new light.
Oh, and she also hosts a great podcast called Gin and Innovation which has featured dConstruct alumni Dan Williams and James Bridle.
Healthcare is deadly. As patients and clinicians, we have long passed the threshold of comprehension when it comes to the amount of data and variables that support life-critical decisions. The system needs to be redesigned and re-imagined. True change comes from establishing a vision for healthcare that will modernize how doctors and patients interact with their health data to quantified and measurable medicine.
In this episode of The Digital Life, we discuss the idea that “Design is Medicine,” with Involution Studios Creative Director, Juhan Sonin. In his health design practice, Sonin explores how linear-thinking human beings can interpret non-linear, unbalanced health metrics, and how healthcare can be saved through coordination, presentation and design.
Join us as we look at the design, data, and policy challenges, as well as the scary new ideas being invented to solve them, that makes tackling the healthcare problem daunting and exciting.

One myth of innovation is that brilliant solutions leap fully formed from the minds of geniuses. In reality, we don’t simply realize solutions; we design them. Design thinking is now being applied to address a wide range of concerns, from delivering clean drinking water to improving airport security and microfinancing.
