The jury says
Flow is an integrated homecare and med-tech system for lung patients that take a holistic design approach by blending form, technology, and material choice. Nanna and Kristine’s work with Flow demonstrates design’s ability to meet actual human needs. The device looks like a regular water bottle, but in reality, it’s a lightweight device that allows patients to live a more active and social life with less focus on their disease. Ultimately, it prevents patients from feeling stigmatized in their everyday lives, thereby improving quality of life.
