Chemically Inspired

I’ve spent my fair share of time hunched over vials of acids and bases, concocting acetaminophen and watching chemical reactions explode. There’s definitely a part of me that regrets not pursuing chemistry, not so much for the science, but because

Biodesign

After seeing some horrendous product design on Gizmodo inspired by parts of the female form, I’ve been on the look out for good bio-inspired design. Luckily the team at Pure Austrian Design has pointed me towards Renate Hattinger‘s Human Interior

Form Bike to Boardroom

I spent this past weekend in a surprisingly wet Chicago, damn you hurricane Ike. I was luckily spared the brunt of the torrential downpour thanks to my recently purchased Mackintosh (Mac), but I’ll be posting on that later in the

Good Design Saves Lives

Properly administering drugs to children is a continuing problem in developing nations. Often, health care professionals in these areas only have adult doses of medication, which are then incorrectly prescribed and can lead to increased child mortality.

This effort is in collaboration with The Releef Initiative, a non-profit pharmaceutical corporation that’s dedicated to reducing childhood mortality in the developing world through innovative pharmaceutical products.

Prosthetics were introduced to me pretty early in my biomedical engineering (BME) education. They were at one point, all we, as BMEs, were supposed to concern ourselves with — luckily the field has expanded. Prosthetics have two purposes, functional recovery
