Resilience & rehabilitation
The workshop resilience & rehabilitation focuses on people who were paralyzed or lost a limb by an accident, changing their lives completely.
The students are encouraged to design new products on the basis of empathy with the patients that would make life easier and better for these individuals.
That is why the workshop visited the ‘REVAlution center’, a rehabilitation center in Herentals where they were familiarized with techniques and devices that patients use for rehabilitation every day. During the tour, the students followed a patient who taught his story and personal experiences to them. In the meantime, some rehabilitation devices could be tested.
