On-the-Go Health

Medical items are being made portable for enhanced accessibility

Implications - Medical and general health-related products are being offered in increasingly compact and unique forms in order to elevate portability. These compact forms include kits that curate the most important features of the service to be delivered, so they can be used in on-the-go. This shift comes as those in health-related fields seek out ways to enhance accessibility for remote individuals and communities, or those with limited funds.

Workshop Question - How can your brand streamline its products/services to enhance accessibility?
