Join the Design Museum to explore how smart technology is transforming healthcare and our relationship to the human body, in partnership with Imperial College London.

With the rise of big data and wearable devices, our ability to monitor the human body has reached unprecedented heights. Used in clinical practice to enable rapid diagnoses and care, wearable technologies are equally becoming familiar parts of our daily lives not only in healthcare, but also in personal training and tools for individual well-being. But as our body becomes ever more open to data collection, can design enable these technologies to create healthier and happier lives? And what impact will these new devices have on healthcare in the future?

This talk shall explore the design stories behind a revolutionary wearable device: the e-AR sensor. Bringing together the designer, the engineer and a design critic, this event shares the design and engineering story behind this object, before going on to explore how these devices are about to transform the world we live in.

The Future of Health is produced in partnership with Imperial College London.

Adult £25, student/ concession £20, Members £22.50.

Speakers:

Professor Guang-Zhong Yang is Director and Co-founder of the Hamlyn Centre for Robotic Surgery at Imperial College London, and Deputy Chairman of the institute of Global Health Innovation. His research explores the medical potentials of robotics and wearable technologies and is known as world leading expert on Body Sensor Networks.
