EPILINK Epinephrine auto-injector

Smart and reusable epinephrine auto- injector for people who have allergic anaphylaxis reaction and allergic emergency cabinet for public spaces. Collaboration with 2016


research what is anaphylaxis?

1 in 25

people suffer from a food allergy

Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic reaction that is rapid in onset and may cause death. It typically causes more than one of the following: an itchy rash, throat or tongue swelling, shortness of breath, vomiting, and low blood pressure. Common causes include insect bites and stings, foods, and medications.

private usage scenario of Epilink in daily life

In emergency, place your outher thigh, push down hard.

Read instructions and take out cartridge from its cover

Place cartridge to your auto - injector holder part and carry Epilink in daily life.

Hold on outher thigh and wait 10 seconds to deliver drug.

After injection, remove injector and massage injection site 10 seconds to spread

In emergency, turn to remove safety lock and release medicine..

Epilink will inform emergency services when device is used automatically.


restaurant usage scenario of Epilink on uncoscious patient People are having a dinner in a restaurant.

According to age of person, it is easy to be decided to use which Epilink. Just rotate the lid and take it.

One of the persons started to show allergy to the one of the ingredients of meal..

Take the appropriate injector Use the Epilink on patient and run back to the patient. according to instruction written on its screen..

Staff noticed the situation and immediately reached the Allergy Emergency Cabinet to get an Epilink.

Hold firmly 10 second, massage injection site.

The home bathroom faucet

Developing a sustainable bathroom faucet inspired by flow of water on plants through incorporating biomimicry approach 2014


research biomimicry approach As a design method biomimicry was used in this project. Through nature trips, samples were collected and analysed in terms of form and function. .Different features of plants were explored to be inspired for this project.

The flow of water in plants was inspirational in terms of form to indicate where water comes and where it is stored naturally.

In this project, problem area focus to encourage the effective use of water (for daily use and cleaning) in households and the design solutions aims to empower productuser relationship through:

hygienic

1 encouraging and engaging product-user interaction,

reach

2 enabling visibility of resource consumption, and appealing to the needs and preferences of diverse user groups (e.g. elderly, children, adults, etc.) User interviews and observations revealed some common expectation from home-usage bathroom faucet..

wall-mounted version

sink version

Ease of cleaning with rounded section. Adjust easily through long flow rate control. Effective use and visibility of resources through hierarchy between controls. Stabilization for temperature of water.

Easy assembly for different sink types. More visible controls to adjust hot & cold water. Aerated filter to save water. Chrome matte & polished alternatives. High aesthetics quality.


usage scenario cold temperature & closed

When faucet is closed, controls’ angles are 180,so users can realize right position.

warm temperature & half flow rate

When control sticks are near to the midpoint, temperature will warm and flow rate will increased.

hot temperature & maximum flow rate

In the 90 degree position, it reaches maximum temperature and flow rate.

In this project, to make model of proposed design, I used clay modelling. To create organic forms and smooth surfaces, clay is a effective model-making tool.

BUGGY Rapid Intervention Vehicle

Buggy is rapid intervention vehicle which is designed to be used in big factories in industrial regions. Its main aim is that making first response to the fire and rescue people if somebody get stuck in the factory environment.. Group project with Azra Tuğçe Süngü Birnur Şahin Jemma Forster Yashar Kardar

Collaboration with 2015


research

Storage and placement of personal protective clothes. BOATS, GLOVES, CLOTHES, BREATHING APPARATUS

Small vehicles can move easily in indoor places like big fabricas.

Storage and placement of equipments which are used during operation. HOSES, CUTTERS, HAND TOOLS.

Portable solutions for rescue operations. TELESCOPIC LADDER, PRECASSUVIE RESCUE TOOLS.

OSTIM & KURTULUS Fire Stations in Ankara were visited and user interviews were organized with firefighters.


user experience

problem definition timing Timing, the main fire station takes too long (10 plus minutes) Fire gets out of hand after 5 mins Provides communication and knowledge of situation to larger crews reducing the time it takes to formulate an action plan accessability Fire fighters cannot assess indoor industrial fires well. Vehicle provides support and safety for firefighters when entering the building. Electric car can be safer and easily manoeuvrable for fire fighters

‘‘The most important thing is first intervention.’’ Ahmet, 52

rescue Quick access, provides immediate fast response into area. It should provide immediate first aid to victims before other crews can arrive.

usage scenario

The firefighter adjusts water- foam ratio in control box.

When fire alarm is on, they take their gear from the vehicle and get prepared to enter the building.

When the accident occurs, they open storage part and choose proper tools to rescue workers.


They begin to extunguish fire.

They clear scene using cordless cutting tools to access and apply first aid to injured.

The firefighters work together with external crew.

If needed, they can use a scoop stretcher to carry injured to ambulance.

product details & accessories

cooking & serving The platfrom has variety of cooking surface options including ragged grate, stone and clay. When the cutting board is rotated , it can be used as serving eqipment.


usage scenario

The platform can be mounted on an island type countertop for double sided usage with parts ranging between 2,4 and 6.

The parts of the platform can be arranged in different variations for more personalized usage. By this way, it is easier for that multiple people can cook together.

With the transparent surface of the parts, it is clear to see if the resistance is heating or not. To change or repair the parts, since the bottom of the parts are open, it is easy to access them.

Apart from the island type kitchen, it can also be mounted on regular one sided countertops with parts ranging between 2,4 and 6.

The platfrom can be used in outside with its specialized structre and their electricty can be linked for simultaneous cooking.

The parts of the platform can be moved outside with its special frame, which can either be put on top of the structure or directly on table.


accessories

storage

The structure for outside usage can be folded for easier storage. With the wheels, transportation becomes effortless.

Mangala Turkish Souvenir Redesign of Traditional Mangala Game The project aim is designing a souvenir related to Turkish culture for foreign tourists. 2012


MANGALA In this project, I choose mangala game because it reflects Anatolian culture like nomadic life and characteristics of Turks like being warrior. Because of that pieces symbolize soldiers and big part is divided for treasure.

The difference of Mangala Game from the other games of its age is that it was a game that could be played by the people of any age and culture ranging from the shepherd in the mountain to the 70-year-old scholar, from Sultana in the palace in Istanbul to the 5-year-old kid.
