Engaging Interfaces to Tackle Serious Health Concerns: BME 1450 Design Competition

Students of the BME 1450 Design Course exhibited their healthcare products at a competition last Monday. Held in the Stone Lobby (Medical Sciences building), the projects included apps for monitoring cardiac vitals, a fuzzy toy that measures and engages children with their level of physical activity, and a stop-motion video game to teach children on the Autistic spectrum how to safely cross the street.

“We were very impressed with the quality and level of innovation that all teams were able to produce in a short time frame,” remarked the instructors, Assistant Professors Patricia Trbovich and Elaine Biddiss. “We look forward to seeing some of these products on the market!”
