This podcast features the experienced innovator, designer and entrepreneur, Stuart Karten of Karten Design.

Stuart founded his product innovation consultancy in 1984 to help companies use creativity strategically to establish market leadership. Today his firm is one of the nation’s premier product innovation firms and he leads a staff of 30 design researchers and strategists, industrial designers, and mechanical engineers. Karten Design continually brings the very latest ideas and innovations to the solutions they help develop for healthcare, and that’s because they work across industries and partner with leading medical device companies as well as consumer electronics and consumer product manufacturers to create extraordinary experiences between people and products. Stuart talks about the impact of rising consumer expectations on the development of healthcare solutions, and the evolution of the home as the health hub of the future.

Stuart and I spoke while he was in his office in Marina del Ray, California. Stuart gives us a peak into “salutogenesis”, if you don’t know what that is, don’t worry, he explains on this podcast (and a link for more information is in the show notes).

As a special resource for our listeners, Stuart has also created a process guide on strategic front end innovation, and you can pick that up by visiting http://digitalhealthtoday.com/3.

Be sure to check out the slides from the session he hosted at SXSW last month where he discussed the home as the health hub on the future.
