The HEDI platform stands for the Healthcare Engineering Design and Innovation; it is a proposed platform aimd to promote co-creation of medical products with cooperation of different stakeholders with specialized expertise. Co-creation activities can be conducted either offline or online. In this study, the offline co-creation mechanisms were tested through three projects to gain insights into what worked and what did not work. Online co-creation platforms such as Quirky, Kaizao were analyzed to summerize their attributes. Based on the investigation of offline co-creation methanisms and online co-creation platforms, insights were drawn for the development of the co-creation platform of HEDI. The Value-Methodology-Execution (VME) Pyramid was used to illustrate the structure and significance of co-creation for healthcare engineering design and innovation.
