EHealth research employing technology and HCI to support wellbeing, recovery and maintenance of conditions, has seen significant progress in recent years. However, such research has primarily focused on mobile "apps" running on commercial smartphones. We believe that Tangible User Interfaces (TUIs) offer many physical and interaction qualities that would benefit the eHealth community. Yet, there is little research that combines the two. Tangibles for Health will bring together leading researchers in tangible user interaction and health to explore the potential of tangibles as applied to healthcare and wellbeing.
