Hopkins Hour: Co-designing technology solutions for translation into real-world application.

Co-design in the rehabilitation setting enables providers and technologies to deliver fit-for-purpose solutions that increase people’s ability to participate with dignity in the home, in the community and in the workplace. At The Hopkins Centre, our researchers recognise that meaningful collaboration between all stakeholders is required to ensure that technologies are responsive and acceptable to rehabilitation challenges. This is why our researchers are always looking to achieve best-practice in the practice of co-design when developing and testing new technology solutions for rehabilitation settings.

In this Hopkins Hour, three Centre researchers discussed how they are promoting and achieving best practice in co-design with novel and practical approaches, in the presentations: 

  • The CREATE framework for co-designing rehabilitation technology presented by Dr Camila Shirota
  • Co-design of a technology solution for transition to home following Traumatic Brain Injury presented by Dr Tenelle Hodson
  • Thinking Aloud: A Practical Approach to Usability Testing presented by Dr Kelly Clanchy.

The three presentations were followed by a conversation with Paralympian Matt McShane and Professor Louise Gustafsson and a dynamic Q&A time.
