From protein to pixel to policy, design-for-health possibilities and responsibilities are immense.
Involution’s Creative Director Juhan Sonin talks about design-for-health possibilities in an upcoming UNTETHER.tv interview with host Rob Woodbridge.
What we call “health” is made up of episodic issues and interventions … we are most conscious of our health during the moments when we’re face-to-face with a clinician.
In “Design for Life,” Juhan posits that continuous but noninvasive collection of individual health data may hold the key to those “teachable moments” in data that signal potential outcomes and prompt micro behavior shifts that, in turn, offer feedback and affirm new behaviors. If health is beautifully integrated into our daily life, so that we’re getting continuous assessments, we’ll be able to adjust in near-real time.
This design space needs to chew on the massive volume of data and massive volume of human factors and their interrelationships — from what we’re eating, how we’re moving, how we work, and what makes up our genome, and expand that to an entire system picture of a human living on Planet Earth. All of that interconnecting and interlocked information tissue needs to be condensed into a single decision space that’s not a data dump but a highly personalized, insightful crystal ball.

Health Axioms put you in touch with habits to improve your health, life, and well-being. Thirty-two beautifully illustrated cards in a pocket-sized deck remind you of simple, profound, and sometimes surprising principles of better health. On the back of each card, you’ll find essential insights, tips, and help in manifesting that axiom in your life.
