Corinne commented on Design Thinking + Technology for Health Aid Devices

Are there any visionary leaders in the area of mobility design that are defining needs and setting intuitive but extraordinary goals, like Steve Jobs?

Yes and yes! We know large suppliers (as Gerren vividly pointed out) go with the bell curve and tend to react when trends are in motion or set. The trick is to use this moment, with the tipping point in sight, to use design to define this as a break from the past. A chance to see design in social innovation.

Your description of having the devices having a "quality of joy inherent in them" is a core concept, perfectly said! Thank you.

That's a terrific article, Jaclyn! I smiled reading about the market research Sabi did to determine there was a market for low tech (or for that matter high tech!) objects at addressed physical limitations of aging. I smiles because I've been thinking about this for many years-organic research marketing, I guess.

Yves Behar is a wonderful designer and I'll enjoy seeing how things go for them. It's an idea whose time has come. Thanks for connecting me to the article.
