Future Design Hub - Helping Hand

Future Design Hub


The Future Design Hub is Helping Hand’s platform for developing innovation and technologies in the ageing space. We’re driven by principles of co-design, commercialisation and collaboration.

Located within Helping Hand’s North Adelaide care home the Hub explores, develops and tests ideas and products which aim to improve the quality of life of older people.

The provision of a physical space unlocks the opportunity to undertake research and projects in partnership with residents, as well as links to the broader Helping Hand community.

The Future Design Hub is an Enterprising Partnership project between Helping Hand and UniSA. The two organisations have worked together for more than twenty years developing leading research and student placement programs. In 2017 the organisations celebrated their relationship with the signing of an MOU to represent an Enterprising Partnership.
