Connected Health For this project students took the role of industrial design consultants working for a technology company that wanted to design applications for their technology in remote patient monitoring (RPM) devices. The company is highly skilled in current and emerging forms of wireless communication and software and wanted to branch into a physical product. Focusing on personal / home health monitoring, the product would be designed around elderly people suffering from early to late onset dementia and in particular alzheimer’s. This product would be designed to enable more independence for the user while giving family and doctors the opportunity to contact and monitor the users health remotely. At later stages when the user needs more hands on help this device would then facilitate home care for the next of kin, providing access to services in the home and allow monitoring of the alzheimer’s patient remotely from the carers place of employment.

Fabrication Techniques

Heavy metal / Light Metal This studio explored a range of metal fabrication and craft techniques used in small object design, we studied the methods that where employed in the 1800’s by blacksmiths jewelry makers and Industrial Designers such as Christopher Dressers. The studio was run in two halves Heavy Metal techniques and Light Metal techniques, these covered the fabrication of Iron and light metals such as copper and Brass respectively. With our new found skills we had to employ them in the creation of a small functional object. The object I chose was the teapot.

Page: 21


Heavy Metal The heavy metal side of the studio was run by lecturer Dr Judith Glover. Having had a lot of experience in heavy metal fabrication prior to undertaking this studio at RMIT, and a lot of the techniques where familiar to me. The class went through how to measure and cut accurate slots in metal using precision band saws, taping threads, shaping metal through heating, preparing metal for welding and understanding the welding joints used in fabrication of steel and other heavy metals.


Light Metal The light metal side of the studio was coordinated by Emma Luke Industrial Designer and Creative Director of Mecurialist Studio, Emma showed us many of the techniques that she uses at Mecurialist Studios. One of the fine examples of her work is a multi-part cast of a Bird Cranium (Pictured far left), this life cast required many different mould parts in order to accurately be cast in metal. Some of the process we when through in this part of the studio included lost wax casting, wax carving, braze welding, polishing, creating silicone moulds, and adding a patina to metal.


Design and Construction

Outcome

Conclusion Throughout this project the design changed somewhat as easier methods of fabrication arose, in most cases this came about while trying to make the teapot and provided a good design feedback loop throughout the process. Many obstacles and issues arose that I would endeavor to work around if I where to move to a manufactured version of this teapot, Overall this project was an excellent application of fabrication techniques and an insight into the difficulties of manufacturing high quality products without the unit cost of the object being unviable.

Prototyping

Prototype Scooter

Throughout the initial concept phase of this project I wanted to create an object that would be structural and mechanical, one of my concepts was of a kick scooter that was propelled by the mechanical force of the rider. During my research I found several examples of scooters that used spring loaded chain or sawtooth mechanisms for locomotion during the 1920’s and 30’s in Europe, I wanted to update this design using modern bike equipment and manufacturing techniques, to create an interesting alternative to kick scooters and bicycles.

Research and cad work

1920's German Kick Scooter

Left image: This is an example of a 1920’s German kick scooter that had a ratchet pedal mechanism that could be used to coast along German roads during the depression, these scooters where popular during the depression because of their relatively cheap construction compared to bicycles at the time.

Prototype Frame Design

German Kick Scooter, http://www.omerohome.com/product/vintage-german-kick-push-scooter

The Frame For the frame construction I wanted to make sure that the components would be easy to fit inside the scooter and that the frame would be strong enough to support an adult rider while not being too heavy to ride or carry. With this in mind I decided to construct the frame out of 6061 aluminium alloy sheet processed in a water jet cutter and welded together using slot joints similar to those used in model aircraft construction.

How it works 1

2 Board

Bike Chain

Rear Wheel

Drive Ratch-

Rack

L-Link

Front Wheel

1. The mechanism on the scooter has been designed to include elements of bike mechanics and linkages used in steam locomotives in order to direct linear movement into rotational movement turning the scooter wheels. 2. When the riders front foot presses down on the board it moves the

3

linkages and drives a toothed rack backwards, this rack turns a drive ratchet clockwise turning a bike chain that drives the back wheel. 3. The ratchet allows the forward moment of the rear wheel and chain to continue as the riders foot is lifted from the board, a return spring on the rack pushes the board and links into the starting position. NB: The act of rider shifting their body weight to the front of the board allows gravity to increase the force on the movement reducing the effort require by the rider. Page: 29

the red flag network RAISING THE RED FLAG ON PUBLIC HEALTH


Service Design

THE RED FLAG NETWORK

The Red Flag Network is an integrated system of personal medical data and automated analysis. This system creates a standard integrated service, connecting all fragmented medical health services and physicians into one interconnected framework. This system ensures that users engaging at any point of the service are getting a higher quality of care regardless of the point at which these services are accessed. It facilitates peer reviews on diagnosis and monitoring of patients drug administration which aims at reducing the complications that arise from misdiagnosis and drug incompatibility. This network facilitates access of user specific information between  certified medical providers without the limitations of bureaucracy. It also provides a system for distributing information on the latest research, and medical treatments keeping medical staff at the forefront of the best practices. At the back end, data is anonymously collected to monitor public health as a whole. By analysing the data, information can be communicated in a way that can give medical experts and policy makers insight into public health trends. Allowing decisions to be made when a public health issue starts to become a major problem. A project by SCOTT MAWHINNEY & JOSHUA SUKLAN

DATA ANALYSIS AND METRICS

Raw data is useless unless it can be communicated in an effective visual way, this allows policy makers and medical practitioners to identify areas that need attention without having to expend a great deal of time analysing the data. TOP LEFT: In this example a ‘Heat Map’ is being utilized to visually represent the distribution and quantity of misdiagnoses case. This map is combined with the snapshot data in on the left hand side to illustrate the most important elements of this issue. With the use of the heat map key we can identify areas that may have a higher than normal rates of mis-diagnosis and areas that have higher rates of fatalities. These dashboards allow for the quick and efficient monitoring of a wide range of data sets efficiently. BOTTOM LEFT: When required the system will allow users to drill down into the data. In the example on the right a graphical representation of the same data has been laid out in a line graph, this page shows the number of cases over time and the tolerance levels for that data set. The system raises a flag if levels go higher than the upper limit, when triggered a distribution list of users are notified. Recommendations for resolving the issue can then be implemented as soon as possible, this flag will only be removed once the levels of the data set go below the lower limit. This setup makes sure that issues requiring a long term solution or commitment will be highlighted until resolved. These levels will be coordinated through recommendations from medical experts and policy makers.
