ZIDA: Neonatal Harness

Designed by: Amber Baden Lopez and John Harris, Spring 2018. (Bachelor of Industrial Design Thesis)

I was able to connect two of these students with TEAM Malawi on a project involving neonatal harness designs for monitoring vital signs. This was another multidisciplinary project, involving students from Biological Science, Mechanical Engineering, Masters of Public Health and the Carilion Medical School. This work is still ongoing and the students’ concepts will soon be tested on users in Carilion Hospital. The results of the study will be evaluated and pushed forward by incoming Industrial Design seniors.
