Stage 1: Share your images, video, text or tweets using the hashtag #DesignforMSK to describe or highlight some of the daily issues you may face as a young person living with a musculoskeletal condition. They can include disease-specific issues or could be used to describe what like if like on a daily basis as a young patient.

Stage 2: Your images, videos and Twitter contributions will feed in to a design process in Manchester between a small group of young patients, product designers and researchers. They will use the content of #DesignforMSK to discuss ideas, draw up initial designs and will work together to make products for yourselves as patients.

Please note that all content shared through the #DesignforMSK hashtag will be publicly available on our dedicated project website and social media channels. Some images may also be used as part of our final exhibition. Please contact if you would like your content removed from the #DesignforMSK website.
