“Human-Centred Design for Healthcare”

At New Media Medicine Ltd, we use digital technologies to improve healthcare around the world by designing and developing interactive digital learning experiences, 3D biomedical animations, mobile apps and medical websites.

We use a “human-centred design” approach to our projects – focusing on making sure our websites, apps and learning experiences work for the humans that use them.
