In this episode we talk to 'OG' interaction and product designer and ex Method Creative Director Alexander Grunsteidl. We pick up on a few threads from our beyond the pill episode, exploring how people are hacking or designing their own healthcare systems. We discuss Alexander's personal experiences of living with an implanted medical device and the part implanted devices might play in the future with use cases beyond healthcare. Prior to working at Method Alexander worked at Phillips and Apple designing medical devices. Alexander is currently Global Head of Design practises at Method's parent company GlobalLogic.
