Sitting is the new smoking: Using design thinking to tackle a public health challenge
Contributed by Mary Taws
In the video above, students from McMaster University’s Innovation by Design (IBD) course share their experiences learning design thinking methodology and applying it to a real world problem. The team discusses the rise of sedentary behaviour and the prototype they developed to address this public health challenge.
Although IBD focuses on understanding the user to design a potential solution, this particular team took things to the next level by getting their prototype production ready. The students wish to thank Mozzaz Corporation for providing their technology to test out their prototype in an app environment. ”
Note: IBD is a course offered by the Health Leadership Academy to undergraduate students (level 3 and higher) and graduate students.
