15.5.2019: The second sex – Digital Health for women and others

Have you ever used a health tracking app and wondered why it was not better designed for women?

That’s because although there are plenty of health and wellness related apps and products today, most of them are designed and built by men. Many of them therefore unintentionally exclude the needs of women users (and others) in the process.

So how can we create health apps that are well-designed, highly usable, and accessible to women?

After years of observing, evaluating, and designing digital products for various industries including healthcare, UX expert Sibylle will share her insights on user-centered design in the digital health sector, and discuss diverse examples of good and poor design.

She will also touch on the issue of ethics in design, discussing how not only UX designers but everybody in the design team can become more conscious in their processes, ensuring that digital health apps created are inclusive and meet the needs of diverse users.
