Visualising Ergonomics data for design
(18th International Conference on Engineering Design (ICED11), 2011)
Over the years, there are a number of tools and methods developed to support inclusive design, and new tools and methods are being developed to plug existing gaps or meet new needs. However, there is a lack of evidence ...
A Taxonomic Classification of Visual Design Representations Used by Industrial Designers and Engineering Designers
(The Design Journal, 2011)
In the context of new product development (NPD), research has shown that not having a common understanding of visual design representations (VDRs) has affected collaboration between industrial designers and engineering ...
Every little does indeed help
(Institute of Ergonomics & Human Factors - The Ergonomist, 2011)
Ageing has been closely linked to loss of agility and strength that makes shopping a challenge for the elderly. The results from this research have revealed a number of issues that senior shoppers face at supermarkets in ...
Development of a tool for building shared representations among industrial designers and engineering designers
(Taylor & Francis, 2010)
Previous studies have demonstrated the importance of multi-disciplinary collaboration in New Product Development (NPD). As such, interactions between industrial designers and engineering designers have become increasingly ...
Past, Present and Future: Using Digital Technologies to Support Conservation
(De Montfort University, 2012-05-25)
The use of emerging technologies conventionally applied to design and engineering industries are now increasingly used for object-based conservation and location-based heritage projects. These new technologies are changing ...
Exploring the use of additive manufacture for high value consumer products
(13th Conference on Rapid Design, Prototyping & Manufacturing (RDPM2012), 2012-06-22)
High value consumer products have proved significant in the development of Additive Manufacturing (AM). Whilst the often whimsical outputs of this sector lack the economic importance of the aerospace industry or the ...
Sustainable Innovation: Footwear Material Choices and Design for People Suffering with Diabetes
(Materials Science and Technology Society of Nigeria, 2013)
Recent research has shown that foot complications are common in people with diabetes, with this being more prominent in less developed countries (Forlee, 2010; Rayman 2004). As a result, there has been an increase in ...
Diabetic footwear: materials choices and design.
(LAP Lambert Academic Publishing, 2016)
The role of appropriate footwear in the management of diabetic foot: Perspective of clinicians in a low resource setting
(Archives of International Surgery, 2014)
The use of appropriate footwear among patients with diabetes mellitus and those with diabetic foot problems has been documented to play a vital role in the prevention and treatment of the established foot disease. However, ...
Experimental 3D Digital Techniques in Design Practice
(The 2nd International Conference on Design Creativity (ICDC2012), 2012-09-18)
Experimentation is central to creative practice. Artists throughout the ages have explored, adopted and adapted the use of tools and techniques for creative means. The digital era has been no different; and as technology ...
