  • G-Motiv

    Designing Motivation - Changing Human Behaviour Using Game-Elements (G-MOTIV) is about researching and applying new approaches to behavioural change based on motivation by using game elements. We will conduct research on the motivational effect of game elements in changing behaviour. Our multidisciplinary team of scientists and designers will work on developing intelligent PSS prototypes in the fields of health care and human resources, resulting in structural behavioural change.
  • Grey but Mobile

    Enhanced Care Service through Improved Mobility for Elderly People (Grey But Mobile) is about improving care-related mobility services for the elderly supporting independent living and social connectivity. Importantly, the quantitative and qualitative effects of these proposed services have to contribute to the improved health of the elderly as well as to the economic efficiency of care.
  • Selemca

    The Services of Electro-mechanical Care Agencies (SELEMCA) lab is a research facility in Amsterdam dedicated to exploring novel assistive technologies for groups such as elderly persons and people suffering from (mental) health disorders. More specifically, our mandate includes the development of systems built around human interactions with robots, computer-based agents, and virtual worlds. We refer to these systems as Caredroids, devices or software that will provide a variety of medical services.

publications

  • Strategic Creativity Series 04 Susana Cámara Leret Designing with young addicts and healthcare professionals in a rehabilitation clinic requires a deep understanding of the everyday situations they face, especially when the anticipated designs aim beyond the mundane at more speculative and uncharted territories. This publication brings together a wide range of perspectives of that journey, with stories about how the design of a set of smells influenced the youths’ treatment and how the design of fictional ‘companion species’ allow people at the clinic to see and discuss their daily environment in new ways.

  • The in-between: an experimental venture into the position of the designer Camara Leret, S.; Raijmakers, B. Increasing interdisciplinary collaborations between art, design and science, draw  attention to the need of elucidating the position of the designer. Such stance is hereby identified as an in-between position, characterised by its exploratory nature, which contributes to the experimental practice of design as a whole. This interstitial position for design, is furthermore identified as an empowering one, which can open up doors to novel opportunities and outcomes, by enabling designers to engage within the processes that construct meaning.  Download
