The healthcare and wellbeing sector is being challenged by an ageing population and those living with long term health conditions. Self-management techniques are required to help individuals live their lives in the best possible way. The Wellbeing Chiasma will explore ideas around this challenge, seeking to develop new and innovative approaches that could be applied in healthcare and wellbeing contexts such as ageing, obesity and diabetes. The impact of improving personal health and wellbeing provides a business opportunity.
Design in Action has allocated up to £20,000 (per idea) and a range of support services to prototype ideas arising from the Chiasma process. See the ‘Business Opportunity’ section of the Call for Participants/Terms of Engagement document for more details.
