Open Design and Medical Products; 3D printing and Cystic Fibrosis


Using open source design, a community of people who live with cystic fibrosis was created who meet online to collaboratively design medical products from their own lived experience. The project is linked to the Cystic Fibrosis ward at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, as well as encompassing participants from around the UK and North America. This method allows people typically barred from collaborative design (through being immunocompromised) to have a voice for the first time in the development of devices crucial to their quality of life.
