Co-Creation Journey for Inclusive Tools


Develop prototypes for open-source assistive devices (careables) as an inclusive team

Through our Open Health Hackathons at BeAble, we've learned that any matching team can develop assistive technology prototypes in about 6 weeks.

Here we share with you our best practice workflow, including input videos, activity templates, and a detailed guide (as PDF).

It will help you have a great flow in your collaboration and independently create a prototype for an open-source assistive device (a Careable).

How to start:

- Watch the Intro video and read the Onboarding frames of the board. Get familiar with the structure of the Journey and download the Co-Creation Guide PDF for more details. - Start with the Team phase and the activity “Getting to know,” then always take the next step. - We hope you'll have a great time on the Co-Creation Journey!
