The exhibition presents new ways of managing and controlling one’s own health. Take a look at eight different stories in which the patients themselves are the experts. The patients have developed instruments, measuring devices and networks, and with the help of them, they lead a better life. The exhibition has been produced by the Science Museum in London and it is part of the EU wide SPARKS project.

Heureka is also showcasing genetic tests in the exhibition. Visitors can participate in a survey, the results of which are given to genome researchers to use.
