Hills Young Australian Design Award

The Charlwood Design office recently received some great new when we found out that two students from RMIT had become finalists in Hills Young Australian Design Awards.

Sarah Heimeier and Victor Bejan both attended the Charlwood Design Medical Device studio that we ran at RMIT University in 2013 (see here and here). We are pleased to see that both of them have pursued their interest in the Medical Device world!

Sarah has developed a rather clever Remote Pregnancy Monitor aimed at rural women. The system monitors a pregnant mothers body- recording any symptoms, blood pressure readings and development she may have. The information is then sent to their doctors in an effort to reduce the amount of visits needed.

Victors project is an Anaphylaxis Monitor aimed at reducing the life threatening allergic reaction that can happen to sufferers. The wearable device automatically administers adrenalin whilst simultaneously contacting emergency services when an allergic reaction happens. This helps to remove human error, which has previously been the cause of multiple avoidable deaths.

Charlwood Design wishes both Sarah and Victor the best in their future endeavors. It's great to see young designers with a thirst for helping people!
