Many children dislike taking medication, because they find the taste unpleasant, have a hard time swallowing it, or are embarrassed about doing so in front of other people. So how can we make it easier for them to take medication without undue physical and mental stress? We have teamed up with Morimoto-Pharma Co., Ltd., which develops and produces medical administration jelly, and conducted joint projects. Using a user-participation design methodology, based on repeated workshops and prototyping, we have distilled concrete insights from children’s everyday lives and developed solutions.
