The exhibition explores innovative healthcare design and the power of design to improve people’s lives. It considers 150 years of taking healthcare into the community and the home. The show provides a historical, contemporary and future view on the support technologies used by healthcare professionals to deliver patient care away from hospital. Museum objects such as Victorian medical instruments and remedies will be shown alongside contemporary design that will save lives in the future.
'Mobilising Healthcare' features products and prototypes that have purposely been designed to improve patient safety, home healthcare, and emergency care. The show provides an insight to the development of a multi-awarding twenty-first century Nursing Bag designed by Swann with support from NHS East Riding of Yorkshire. Swann’s Nursing Bag design has been exhibited in California, Copenhagen and London, and will be seen in a new context in Huddersfield’s Mobilising Healthcare exhibition.
