About: This was the outcome of an academic project at the Institute of Design where we partnered with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to design the future of their post treatment cancer care experiences.
Our group was working towards creating an experience for Breast cancer patients. This exploration led to Emocare which is a system of Ambient objects created to improve the emotional wellbeing of the breast cancer affected when they move home.These ambient objects become a part of the cancer affected's everyday life to enable behavior change.
There are three main components: Emospect, Emolight and Emoweigh. Collectively they help the cancer affected Introspect, Express and Communicate to improve their emotional wellbeing.
Learning: Working on a multicultural team, Provotyping in research, Prototyping for idea development and creating compelling communication.
Team: Priyanka Marawar, Aashika Jain, Min Lee, Wanning Ho
