Prof. Chi-Wen Lung, an associate professor of the Department of Creative Product Design at AU, introduced medical product design to Director Rimuljo Hendradi (upper left) and teachers of the Information System Research Program at Universitas Airlangga in Indonesia.
Universitas Airlangga in Indonesia, one of the sister schools of Asia University (AU), invited on June 14 Prof. Chi-Wen Lung at the Department of Creative Product Design at AU to give a lecture on medical product design, attracting nearly 50 teachers and students from Indonesia. As mentioned above, AU conducts international academic exchanges through online-video communication.
Director Rimuljo Hendradi of the Information Systems Study Program of the Faculty of Science and Technology at Universitas Airlangga in Indonesia invited Prof. Chi-Wen Lung from AU, who has been committed to medical business, to give a speech with “From Industrial Design to Biomedical informatics” as the topic. Prof. Lung explained to the students and teachers from Indonesia how to apply product design methods to develop medical products suitable for people.
Prof. Chi-Wen Lung said that the development process of medical products should be directed towards clearly expressing physiological characteristics. At present, the physiological characteristics of many diseases are not easy for doctors and patients to understand. Therefore, Prof. Lung emphasized that the essence of product design should be able to smoothly express and fully communicate information between humans and computers, and that sometimes, though the complexity of physiological information is high, different interfaces can be used layer by layer to get different feedbacks. “Medical products under this principle will allow doctors or patients who use them at home to be able to confirm information on all aspects of the body,” said Prof. Lung.
Director Rimuljo Hendradi pointed out that medical information generally gives users less messages. Medical products should be designed to solve users' problems; if everyone interprets the information consistently, many medical communication problems can be reduced.
   Prof. Lung said that after the speeches, most questions asked by Indonesian students are about how they can successfully obtain the opportunity of becoming exchange students or pursuing advanced degree programs at AU. He also said that AU has undertaken many governmental international academic exchange programs over the years, and pointed out that many students from Universitas Airlangga came to AU as an exchange student for six months through the Taiwan Experience Education Program (TEEP) of the Ministry of Education and learned a lot of academic knowledge. Prof. Lung believes that after the epidemic, these exchange programs can still be continued friendly and interactively. “If students want to apply for a master's degree at AU, they can also ask the relevant unit of Universitas Airlangga,” mentioned Prof. Lung.
