Medical Training Manikin

BARTS HEALTH

Hospitals and Universities spend thousands on medical manikins to train practitioners for specific procedures. The brief set to us by Bart’s Health NHS, was to reduce the cost of existing manikins for the process of locating the jugular vein.

We reconsidered the process entirely, creating a product that creates manikins at very low cost. Inspired by a jelly mould and Tupperware, the design creates a mould into which a disposable (water-soluble) gelatin manikin can be created to produce a reusable, sustainable design. This new way of approaching the problem provided a very low-cost ongoing solution for the NHS.
