What do we do

Listen - Build - Learn - Inspire ourselves to improve a person’s life.

We are a non profit lab for patients, caregivers and innovators to co-create solutions that address everyday health challenges.

Patient challenges

We work together with patients, patient groups, health professionals, friends and families to understand where simple changes/ideas can make a big impact on a person's life.

Our Projects 

We collect patient challenges, break them up into “hackable bits” and work on them. For example:

 - Light sensors and app for EPP

 - Wearables for T1 Diabetic children

 - App for pediatric incontinence

Learning

We conduct learning session in making, coding, hacking, electronics, user experience, entrepreneurship, and practically anything else you care to learn, giving you the skills you need to make something that can improve a patient's life.

About Us

Our “Why”

We want to use our creativity and skills to make a positive impact on patients and caregivers- One person at a time.

We want to learn from each other.

We like hanging out together and solving problems.

We are inspired by open source communities like OpenAPS, Apache and generations of inventors.

Our ways of working

We offer knowledge and (some) equipment to our members. We help our members bring their ideas to life.

 

We fully embrace the idea of open-source. We want to make the biggest impact on other people’s lives by sharing our ideas and solutions to a wider community.

Our organization

The Health Hacking Lab is a not-for- profit association (a Swiss "Verein").

We are independent and our activities are self-funded, currently via small membership fee from our members.
