Exciting projects and busy weeks…

It’s been a busy few months for the ALL INN project, here’s the highlights!

Our latest session was in February with a security company looking to apply their technological expertise to branch out into health and care products. They engaged ALL INN for a needs analysis session with people who fit the profile of the customers they hope to attract. This will be the first of a series of sessions as they bring the product (or design) back at various stages to get more valuable input from real people. Watch this space for further information.

As well as sessions some longer term projects are underway looking at assistive technology, but always with a focus on the person using the technology and how it will best suit them. An exciting project is Activage, an EU Horizon 2020 project looking at wearables and home sensors for over-65s across Leeds, with IoT-enabled devices interconnecting people and place in an exciting new way. The technology provider for this project is Samsung and we are currently in the design phase. This is an ambitious and important project, stay tuned for updates!

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.

For more information and to enquire about attending please contact Suzanne on Suzanne.morton@leeds.gov.uk or 07584 581 656.

Well, perhaps not quite yet, but the seeds of some good ideas are starting to bud at the ALL INN project. We have some really exciting events in the pipeline, including a co-design session on door handle openers with Doability. We’ll be working with product design students from Leeds Beckett University and people with reduced grip, and using a 3D printer to bring the product to life on the day. Continue reading
