The “Modern Mom” wears several hats in her family; she is the cook, the chauffeur, the housekeeper, the entertainer, and more. This on-the-go mom needs an iPad case that is ready to take on just as many roles. My solution offers a stand-alone protective sleeve that fits into a hard case. The iPad can be placed into the case in different ways to optimize safety of the iPad when in hand, being propped up, or during transport.
The stigma of losing a leg can be traumatizing. It often causes a loss of self-confidence, but by designing an elegant and feminine prosthesis, I hoped to restore that sense of confidence and sex appeal for female amputees. My design is simple, but it maintains the organic lines of the leg while providing an adjustable solution that allows female amputees to wear shoes of varying heel heights.
Working with the UW Center for Commercialization, we developed a design solution for one of their group’s emerging shock-monitoring medical technologies. Surgery is scary; keeping this in mind we tried to create a medical device that promotes a comforting interaction between patient and machine, while maintaining clarity and ease of use for the medical staff. Our final design has the versatility to be optimized in a variety of hospital scenarios with our mounting system solution.
Thank you to Ken, Lori and Wayne for sharing your insights and inspiring us along the way.
