This paper explores the role of tangible and intangible technologies in the development of healthcare solutions that actively involve patients and caregivers in the ideation and development phases through co-design and co-creation processes. In the first part of the document, we frame the characteristics of patient innovation - the phenomenon of user-driven healthcare (Olivera et al. 2015) - in relation to the category of solutions developed, processes and emerging technologies. The second part is focused on a case study called BODYSOUND (a pilot of a H2020 European research) and analyses the co-design process adopted to develop a product-service system for rehabilitation, based on a series of testing of tangible and non- tangible technologies in an attempt to identify a range of opportunity and scenarios. The final part systematizes the results of the analysis and tries to identify a series of challenges that bring this kind of solutions to the market and to users.

Abstract

This paper explores the role of tangible and intangible technologies in the development of healthcare solutions that actively involve patients and caregivers in the ideation and development phases through co-design and co-creation processes. In the first part of the document, we frame the characteristics of patient innovation - the phenomenon of user-driven healthcare (Olivera et al. 2015) - in relation to the category of solutions developed, processes and emerging technologies. The second part is focused on a case study called BODYSOUND (a pilot of a H2020 European research) and analyses the co-design process adopted to develop a product-service system for rehabilitation, based on a series of testing of tangible and non- tangible technologies in an attempt to identify a range of opportunity and scenarios. The final part systematizes the results of the analysis and tries to identify a series of challenges that bring this kind of solutions to the market and to users.
