"Live-up", Design for Health and Wellbeing projects
As part of the Design for Health and Wellbeing course, in the 3rd year of the Bachelor’s Degree in Design, led by Oriol Ventura, the students have created proposals based on how to use design to improve problems related to health and wellbeing.
The action is specific and applied and can be exponentially reproduced. The project places the students as transformative and agile agents in an immediate problem in which they are involved.
Under the name of live-up, the projects shown below are:
Dermis - Anna Vilageliu.
Reflection on showing and not hiding psoriasis. Normalisation.
Campata - Erik Jiménez.
Adaptation of the typical accessory for dogs that stops them from licking during operations or treatments. Placed on the leg, it offers greater comfort when lying down, mobility for playing and eating, and reduces protection to the area of the wound.
Muscle-Up - Adrian Galicia.
The loss of mobility in the thumb on the right hand makes such everyday actions as holding a pen, a card or a piece of paper impractical. By raising the ring finger, the system works as a lever that transmits the strength to the thumb.
