Lindsey StevensonIndustrial Design Engineering BSc
During my years studying design and engineering, including a year in industry spent at MKW Engineering, I have had the opportunity to use a number of approaches to develop engineered products and hone my design skills to a high standard. The products and projects that I have worked on have helped me to mature. Some of my designs are already on the market, and I hope my sound and wide-ranging foundation can only improve in the future.
sam is a unique device for young adults suffering from Cerebral Palsy, who want music easily to hand. Primarily, this is a stylishly designed MP3 entertainment system for those with fine motor problems. It also holds four everyday messages, digitally stored and easily re-recorded, to help the user achieve a sense of independence. For emergency situations, the user can activate a set of key help messages from function buttons illuminated by changing the state of the device. A proving principle prototype and aesthetic model were created, as was an example of sam with a unique coloured skin modelled in Pro/ENGINEER.
