Rise & Design: Innovations in Health

We are seeing some incredible advances in healthcare, from robotic surgeons to apps that can monitor our every step.
And many of these advances have originated here in Yorkshire.
Design Network North have brought together some companies who are exploring and developing innovative healthcare products, to give us an insight into how they came about, and the journey from idea to finished product.
