High Risk Pregnancy Toolkit / Antenatal toolkitThis product was designed to help lay and professional healthcare workers recognise and explain the signs of high-risk pregnancies to women living in fragile environments. This toolkit comprises a durable tear-proof set of referral cards, which act as a teaching aid, plus a battery-less fetal stethoscope (fetoscope) that allows both the health worker and expectant mother to hear the baby’s heartbeat, thus offering a unique experience at the healthcare facility. Philips Design, the International Committee Red Cross, and the Philips Foundation joined forces to help healthcare workers in the field provide better services to pregnant mothers with complications.

Introduction of the Z-Lense real-time 3D scene scanning technology.Z-Lense has launched their latest product development to the public.

The system is still rolling on prototype 1.0 but as a lot of stuff has changed a new iteration is on the way. Video is only in hungarian for now but worth the watch for the demo scenes.

Wait! - Rethinking the Waiting Room with FuelforIt's not just about time! I was working together with Barcelona based design agency Fuelfor to make waiting rooms a little more bearable. In the course of a week intensive work we have designed a series of conceptual improvements for this undesirable place. Have a look at the project featuring on Design Boom.
The results are compiled in a book and it turned out to be pretty nice I think. Have a look and you can purchase a hard copy also.
