Matthew HighamIndustrial Design BSc
The creativity, attention to detail and professionalism that I have developed over the past four years, which has included working with PDD and Hyphen Design, have enabled me to not only create products that look good and function well, but the experience has also allowed me to understand the wider impacts of design, on society and our environment. Design for me is entering an exciting stage, and I look forward to being able to apply and further develop my skills in this rapidly changing and flexible industry.
Tuberculosis is a worldwide epidemic, killing 5000 people everyday. IntroBAL has been developed in collaboration with NHS Innovations London to form part of a revolutionary TB diagnostic procedure. This simple, inexpensive device allows a doctor to visualise the vocal cords in order to introduce a catheter. Improvements brought about by the use of this diagnostic technology could dramatically reduce deaths from TB.
