Just been listening to a radio program from the ABC where they were talking about the importance of design in healthcare and the effect it has on one’s wellness.

Especially people with a cognitive disability or those with a mental illness gain when the design has some sort of novelty to it, or a fun element as it might aid health and healing after an injury or illness.

When designing for this group of people it’s extra important to take noise into account and make use of sensory materials and tactile materials like wood for instance or have a circular designed pod.

If you would like to listen to the interview yourself you can do so via ABC radio by downloading the app or click on download audio.
