Medical Design Deep Dive 2020

November 12, 2020 - November 13, 2020


This virtual event will explore how the role of design and the industrial designer is evolving and adapting to keep pace in these challenging times. What do designers need to know to meet these new challenges? How can our community start conversations that bring us closer?

Medical design may not often be placed at the center of industrial design conversations, but 2020 changed that. This year also highlighted the important role that industrial design can play in our society. Members of the ID community have been reaching across industries and sectors, including human factors, 3D printing and engineering, to co-design solutions amid a global health crisis. Whether designing personal protective equipment (PPE) for frontline workers or ventilators for COVID-19 patients worldwide, more designers have been moving into the medical space and stepping up in paradigm-shifting ways every day.
