UniSA alumni create innovative medical training tool

UniSA Adjunct Senior Lecturer and alumnus Sandy Walker and graduating Master of Design (Industrial Design) student Nirmal Menon have developed a medical mannequin that can simulate medical conditions.
Developed in collaboration with UniSA’s Advanced Computing Research Centre, the mannequin uses spatial augmented reality technology to simulate medical conditions that change over time. It will help medical students learn to diagnose conditions and treat them.

The mannequin was on display at last year’s 2014 Smallacombe Damn Fine Design exhibition, which showcases the innovative design solutions developed by UniSA Industrial Design students graduating this year. The exhibition was launched by Susan Close, State Minister for Manufacturing, and Colin Taylor, Hills Industries Head of Operations and Government.
