I am passionate about helping doctors, nurses and patients improve health outcomes. It is important that I find a way to contribute my energy in this field.
It is important for me to work together with health professionals . It’s fun to chat and observe their working processes and think about how to use design to support their work.
another approach to 3D-printing
The idea is to encourage therapist/ occupational therapists who are helping patients with handicaps to improve their daylife with assistive devices with taking into about the 3D-printing and scanning technology.
In this project I like to create DIY design solutions for occupational therapists. I want to encourage the occupational therapists to make special customized assistive devices using modeling material by their own. After going back to the roots and modelling by hand the object can be reproduced using 3D scaning and printing. I want to outline the method of working with the oven hands and form devices with materials, tools and processes. I see big values and some advantages in this traditional way of shaping good beside the CAD-modeling. The mainfocus is more on the outlined method. The elements of solutions which is a toolbox and the idea-sharing-platform are more in the backround and just help the process and not as a main element.

the mobile lifting aid
After having done intensive research and interviews on the topic, we decided that we wanted to tackle the problem of falling in home care. A debriefing with the target group proved to be fruitful.
With the mobile lifting aid you can raise people that have fallen over, who would otherwise require outside assistance, in order to get back on their feet. Hebix is
intended for home care, due to its light weight and compressibility. Specially shaped edges enable the patient to be raised from a supine into a seated position. The aim was to create an aid for nursing staff in order to ease maual labour .

suffocation and infant death syndrome prevention
It is a helping devise which protects the babys life.
Mockingbird, a wearable devise for suffocation and infant death syndrome
The Mockingbird can predict the vomiting of infants. When the baby makes
stricking movements, it makes a „shout for help“. So it allows the parents get a more restful sleep.
An application can „shout for help“ too. And in the other hand save important dates which are useful for the doctor.

A musical instrument that helps.
Learning by playing - this is the intention of TRING.
The connection of movement and sound are intendend to improve cordination and the musical comprehension. It is possible to create different and personal melodies by setting pins individually onto the rail. Also you can change the sound boxes, what gives you a different tone.
A little step for many little new steps
Simple Limp for Columbia for less than 30$ an cooperation with BOSCH Stuttgart.
Our Simple Limb project was a collaboration with the San José State University in Kalifornien USA and also after the semester with BOSCH Germany
The basic idea of the below design is a simple hinge connection which comprises a traveling fulcrum. The two surfaces are held together with rubber bands, which are passed through bores, and still allow a certain movements. The overlapping of the upper and lower element and allow an exact adjustment of the variable length. end model is a first Prothotyp and will serve as a start for further development.
