Project Lead: Nick Dulake
Explaining and quantifying the feeling and experience of living with chronic pain presents a particularly challenging task. This project uses co-creation methods, digital design and fabrication technologies to create data-objects. The data-objects enable young adults to explore their own pain language, capture this understanding, and use it communicate with others.
The data-objects were part of a larger project bringing together Lab4Living’s researchers and pain management clinicians at Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust. In a series of workshops, the team explored how the use of creative activities might assist young people in describing and communicating chronic pain.
