Wearable Technology

Rosie Brave is challenging automated processes in the mass-manufacture of external prosthetic breasts as Co-Director of Boost Innovations, exploring how personalised prostheses can positively impact wellbeing. As an Automation fellow, she is using co-design workshops and interviews to explore how wearable technology can benefit wellbeing. Rosie is asking whether re-thinking the design process and adaptability of wearables might enable people to create small, automated processes that help them to achieve their individual wellbeing goals. She is interested in how a broader, more holistic definition of wellbeing could be integrated into wearables, and the benefits that come from giving people the freedom to set their own goals, rather than prescribing them eg walking 10,000 steps daily.
