Contrary to many other states, Germany has an organ donation system, that requires that people actively agree to become donors. Due to a lack of information and access to the donor cards, the number of donors remains small. We developed an information system that could clear up about the process and background of organ donation, as well as provide direct access to the cards.
The exhibit is made up of three main components: A touchscreen, the donor cards themselves and four physical cards, that each address one major topic surrounding organ donation and will be used as input devices.
Four main areas
As mentioned before the exhibit addresses four main topics: Historical Background, the process of a donation, the options the donor card itself offers and organs that can be donated. Addressing past scandals and the fear of not knowing what is going on¹ if you decide to donate should help people get a better understanding of what it means to be a donor.
