TALK100 Session 5 

DESIGN, HEALTH and WELLNESS

The design thinking process has enabled the medical profession to develop products and solutions that can improve health care in rural and under-resourced communities in South Africa. Riaan Conradie from LifeQ and HealthQ Technologies has a deep understanding of various fields, from biology, physics, and engineering to functional design and business ecosystems. He has spent the past six years focusing his entrepreneurial energy on the pursuit of his most committed vision: to create an applied systems biology-enabled ecosystem that delivers content that can be actioned, is relevant to context, is universally accessible and can improve health.

John Hutchinson and Phil Goodwin’s fetal heart rate monitor has saved lives around the world. The Fetal Heart Rate Monitor won the 2009 INDEX: Design to Improve Life®, the most prestigious design award in the world. Designer Byron Qually is the talk moderator.
