KITE Design Research GmbH

We at KITE Design Research GmbH explore health issues and design innovative solutions. In the process, we focus on human needs and pain points while also considering societal aspects. We look at stakeholders and contexts holistically and follow an evidence-based and iterative process.We apply structured methods from design, technology, sociology and didactics to capture the most diverse perspectives of a topic. Through co-creation workshops, visualizations, case studies, prototyping, and field research activities, stakeholders and users get involved to generate real-world insights.About us and our experience:– We are designers with expertise in qualitative research as well as machine learning and mixed reality technologies– We are researchers with many years of experience in the implementation ofresearch projects (among others funded by the BMBF – the Federal Ministry of Education and Research in Germany), industry projects (among others Siemens Healthineers) and academic publications

Value our organisation can add in a joint tender​

We develop meaningful design concepts that are strongly oriented toward the requirements of the actors and can take various forms:– optimized processes in healthcare facilities or the healthcare context– valuable, sustainable, and practical suggestions to improve analog and digital processes and products– visions of processes, systems, products, and services in the medical context– accompany transformation processes esp. digital transformation

Areas of cooperation sought​

We are open to many fields and can adapt our methods accordingly with a concentration on the humans in their contexts. In contrast to many other research groups, the starting point for us is the human – patients, medical staff, relatives, and other stakeholders.
