Design Jam: Adaptive Active Apparel & Accessories

Design Core, College for Creative Studies, Urban Manufacturing Alliance, ISAIC, Anew Life Prosthetics and Orthotics, Pingree

Design Jams shift product innovation, which typically happens behind a few closed doors, to a collective and open space – one where all types of voices influence the process. This event will bring together interdisciplinary teams to: Inspire innovation within the region’s manufacturing sector; Catalyze collaborations between designers and manufacturers in the Metro Detroit region; Create solutions for recreational athletes with limb loss; Initiate relationships between designers, manufacturers, makers, service providers, and customers. 

Up to six multi-disciplinary teams have been selected to participate in this 2 part hands-on design and prototyping challenge. Teams were curated to ensure representation from student, faculty and professional designers, manufacturers, makers and entrepreneurs, business coaches, and end users from the limb loss community. 

Applications to join a team are now closed. Outcomes will be shared via Design Core communications after the event. For more information follow us at @designcoredet and subscribe to our newsletter here.
