Design for Impact on Parkinsons Patients
Mileha Soneji believes that the key to truly understanding user needs, is to be in the other person’s shoes. But what if that person has Parkinsons? How do the principles of user centric design apply? By help of empathy, designers can create products and designs that provide value to people’s lives and fulfill their core needs. And remember: smart does not necessarily mean high tech.
