Reboot - Kings College London

OurOwnsKIN are consulting on a research project with Kings College London which seeks to redesign footwear for people diagnosed with Epidermolysis Bullosa - a rare skin condition affecting around 5,000 people in the UK.

OurOwnsKIN, alongside Walk With Path (a healthcare product company) will be participating in co-design workshops with the EB community to understand and map people’s challenges with current footwear designs, methods of customisation and desires for future footwear styles.

Prototypes will then be collaboratively developed alongside three departments at Kings College London. By designing simple interventions for the body, the aim is to extend patients’ comfort, mobility and independence.
