There’s been a short hiatus but ALL INN is back and more exciting than ever!
The photo above shows the most recent user requirements session in action, in early April. It was commissioned by start-up Wellbones to design and have input into their new app for people with or at risk of osteoporosis, and was the first of several as they will return with further iterations of their idea to get valuable feedback and direction from the very audience they are aiming to reach.
ALL INN may have been quiet on the blog front for a while but we’ve been working hard in the background!
A session took place in late September which may lead to an exciting collaboration – watch this space for more details on that. We’ve been featured in a case study on the brand new Translate website, which you can read here as well as on the Doing Good Leeds website.
In addition to this we have a new session to look forward to in the New Year. It will take place on the 3rd February 2017 and is for people living with dementia and their carers, and professionals working in dementia.

Last week ALL INN supported an event to kick off an exciting process to look at innovative ways to identify and meet unmet clinical needs for dementia.
The event was part of the HEFCE Medical Technologies Innovation Catalyst Project, which aims to turn the best academic research into medical technologies that change society for the better.
A productive session leading to two new designs being investigated for potential production took place on 4th May 2016. The ALL INN project hosted Doability, a Leeds based independent living aids retailer and manufacturer, in a pop-up event at Leeds Beckett University.
The purpose of the session was to develop a prototype door handle opener for people with reduced grip, as those currently on the market don’t always fit the bill. We brought people together from a variety of backgrounds, including people with arthritis or reduced grip, Occupational Therapists (OTs) from Assisted Living Leeds and students, some working on placement with Doability and using computer aided design (CAD) skills, and some from Leeds Beckett’s Product Design course.
Last week the ALL INN project visited the IIC show at Manchester Central. The IIC show is a consumer and trade event actively promoting independence, inclusion and choice for people of mixed ability. This proved an excellent opportunity to find out about some of the innovative products coming to market.
It was great to see so many organisations there, including Fast-Tec, Rompa , Kuradocs, Myhomehelper and Embryonyx. Continue reading
The first ALL INN session took place on 27th January, with Buddi bringing along their classic and updated systems, and a new system currently in development for people at risk of type 2 diabetes.
We had a great turn out, with a mix of people with type 2 diabetes, specialist diabetes GP and Commissioning Manager for Adult Social care, as well as Telecare staff members and the Head of Assisted Living. Continue reading
