Absolutely YES! Consider equipment for sports or rehabilitation. Just doing sports as a preventive measure can do much for one’s health. The whole range of well-designed products provides us with the spectrum of opportunities to practice the most sophisticated sports. Design more than just equipment – it is an excuse to motivate, to take the first step !.
And when it is too late for prevention? Again, we have a whole range of well-designed rehabilitation products at our disposal, not just the objects connected to movement.
Design means possibilities and the designer serves as the link between the production and the recipient.
