Vigour, design by Pauline Van Dongen, is a Product Service System that enables geriatric patients, physiotherapists and family to gain more insight in the exercises and progress of a rehabilitation process. A knitted cardigan with integrated stretch sensors monitors the movements of the upper body, and communicates this data to the service provider.
The project is a great example of blending technology with artisanship in a beautifully executed lifestyle good aimed at improving people's lives.
Watch the evocative video below that explains the making and wearing of Vigour.
