Our fresh graduate Regina Tagger thesis project TEEL creates better support for heart transplant patients on their difficult journey.

The admissions are open until 6th of July. More info @

The work focuses on heart transplant patients and co-designing better care services with them. The thesis looks through the ecosystem view of the connected actors and implements social- and service design into the hospital environment.
The concept is based on the main themes of transparency, accessibility, community, the need for a specialised support network, and patient empowerment, to improve the heart transplant patient journey.

Teel is a multidisciplinary patient support system, consisting of physical and digital touchpoints, aiming to increase patient empowerment through education, community, individual approach, inclusivity, specialist network, and shared experience. Teel is an addition to include in the daily life of a patient, diagnosed with a heart condition that results in needing a donor heart. As a result, the patients are feeling empowered on their health journey.

Our fresh graduate Aire Aasmäe thesis project MOMENTA helps us rethink gift-giving by choosing time over things.

The admissions are open until 6th of July. More info @

Momenta is a digital platform that encourages people to spend intentional time with the people they care for by creating personal traditions.
It enables collaboration for the creation and capture of shared experiences and meaningful moments by initiating and mediating conversation around personal needs and preferences in social settings.
Momenta aims to strengthen relationships and create connections, helping us re-evaluate our priorities when it comes to sharing our time and reconsider how we show appreciation to each other.
Instead of concentrating on the short-lived moment of the gift-exchange, the longevity and durability of a strong personal tradition can be leveraged to develop long-lasting connections.
