In the future collecting and analyzing endogenous data through medical devices could be done by the patient himself at home. In this scenario, a redesign of the devices must embody a specific form of authority and democratic power, as found in participative or collaborative design processes.
The research project investigates the possible realization and effects of such future devices, thus their information design on medical practice and care as well as on the practice of design. It is aimed to gain insights especially for the future role of designers and their social responsibility in the context of designing digital products for healthcare.
