My Remote Internship

As part of my Masters degree in Product Design at Cardiff Metropolitan University, I was required to complete an industrial placement. I was extremely lucky to be given the opportunity to undertake a 4-week internship with ITERATE Design + Innovation. Due to social distancing guidelines, it was agreed that the internship should be undertaken remotely. During the placement, I undertook bi-weekly conference calls with Gethin Roberts (Managing Director) and Thomas Gray (Product Design Engineer). This was a great way to update them on my progress but also gain feedback, support, and guidance. As a result, I was tasked with the development of a medical/healthcare product that leveraged SigFox technology. SigFox technology is growing tremendously with its low-power ability to connect sensors and devices, with the aid of small byte commands. Read more

How Additive Manufacturing Assisted in the Fight Against Covid-19

The onset of coronavirus has fundamentally changed the way we live. At the beginning of the crisis, it was feared that the NHS may not have the capacity to cope with the surge in demand and that items of personal protective equipment (PPE), vital in the protection of health care professionals from contracting and transmitting the virus, were in short supply. It became apparent that existing supply-chains and production lines of equipment such as N92 masks; face shields; scrubs and gloves could not adapt quickly enough to meet demand; therefore, a rapid response was required.

A loss in limb mobility is a growing issue within the UK. Such issues are prevalent across a broad spectrum; ranging from mild discomfort to a complete loss of mobility. The most typical cause are experiencing a stroke and reduced mobility due to old age.
