Abstract

The aim of this paper is to present a didactic experience in designing mobile health systems during a Bachelor Degree class in Industrial Design. The scope is to prove the role of Design in the innovation process and how its approach and methodologies connect research, innovation and technology. As case studies, two projects are presented. In the first one, the students have developed a training suite for figure skating; the second one is related to the development of a system that detects and counts instruments and sterile dressings in the operating suites.
