Festival of Design & Innovation: Product Design

Once again we are proud to showcase the achievements of ALS students who, having completed four years of their degree programme, are pictured below with their projects.

FOD 004


Daniel Booth has developed a device to aid in the watering of hanging baskets. This is a 5 litre portable product with a simple pump mechanism designed for the gardener of advanced years and requiring minimal effort. It is of particular use to those with limiting medical conditions such as arthritis. dgbooth1991@gmail.com




FOD 002Matthew Houghton’s product is The Community Nurse Aid (CNA) which he has designed to help community nurses in their work. Primarily, the CNA functions to carry heavy or bulky supplies needed for daily visits. The doors open and display a removable shelf allowing for extra or over-sized supplies mjhought@hotmail.co.uk


FOD 001Here is our good friend, Ryan Godolphin, who has been so helpful to ALS staff engaged in research this year. Ryan features in our promotional video which will be presented in the next academic year. Ryan exhibited the safety device he has designed which brings those in the water safely aboard ships ryan.godolphin@btopenworld.com

FOD 005


This is Hannah Wallace who has designed Accessible Wheelchair Storage. This aids paraplegic wheelchair users to gain independent access to their belongings in secondary schools. The product eliminates the need for a carer and allows the user greater autonomy and more engagement with their peers hannah_wallace3@hotmail.com


FOD 006


Sam Staniland is seen here exhibiting Parcel Drop which he has designed to accept delivery of parcels where house occupiers are not in. Parcel Drop universally mounts securely to the front door via a ratchet drop arm through the letterbox. It is detachable for the user to store http://www.coroflot.com/sam_staniland



FOD 008


In collaboration with the conservation department of the Natural History Museum, Luke Jenner has designed the Oxygen-free Enclosure. The function of this product is to store and preserve sensitive specimens in an environment purged of gases such as Nitrogen or Argon. This saves time and money that would be spend on remedial processes to stop oxidation lukejennerdesign@gmail.com


FOD 007


Finally in this section we have David Christopher who has designed Cycle Signal Lights. This system provides safety to the user whilst ensuring ease in installment and usability. The final cycle light design comprises external casing with clips that attach to the handlebars david.james.christopher@gmail.com


We congratulate all our students and wish them every success in the future
