How do Intensive care units look in the future?

Hi.

I’m an Industrial designer, now doing research on Smart Textiles as a PhD-student at the Swedish School of Textiles. My research the coming 4-5 years will be on providing new insight to the ways we understand –and do– design within the field of Intensive care units at hospitals. Not with a problem solving–, but a meaning making approach.

By carrying out research, an explorative game, I hope to monitor the future, find new knowledge and develop future concepts to the benefit of the patient.

I’m in the very beginning of the process, and would love some input!

Anyone?
