The design opportunities identified and addressed in this years degree projects covered as diverse and challenging themes as: A smart alarm device and service for home safety in slum city communities. A mobile resuscitation kit aimed to streamline the process of resuscitating infants born with breathing difficulties. A simplified tool for pre-hospital REBOA procedures in order to reduce time pressure and stress for the doctors using it. A product and service vision of how future mammography screenings can be carried out. Next generation protection equipment for welders who execute high-precision welds under challenging conditions. A flexible and modular ventilator system for the entire patient journey. A bed-side mat for daily non-intrusive monitoring of patients with heart failure symptoms. A child monitoring system with tactile input for deaf parents to bridge the lack of audio feedback and enhance the emotion connection. A strategic mobility service for BMW X.
