Final year project
EMPOWERING GLAUCOMA PATIENTS TO SELF-ADMINISTER PRESERVATIVE-FREE OPHTHALMIC MEDICATION WHILST TRACKING MEDICATION ADHERENCE
Drop empowers glaucoma patients to self-administer their preservative-free ophthalmic medication, whilst tracking adherence and device use to improve the patient experience and populate patient-specific healthcare records.
Drop - product system
The device maintains medication sterility for up to eight weeks, allowing preservative-free medication to be prescribed. The dock offers adherence reminders and prompts the replacement of medication upon expiry.
Drop - administering a dose
Users can easily position their medication above the eye and administer a consistently sized dose, thus removing ambiguity regarding medication efficacy.
Drop - storage
The dock stores a second bottle of medication, allowing users to keep all device components in a single location.
Drop - device exploded view
Upon expiry, loaded medication can be replaced with a new eight-week supply.

I'm a forward-thinking industrial designer, passionate about developing meaningful products which deliver memorable experiences.
I follow an iterative user-centred design process, where user needs are interpreted and reframed, creating opportunities for design. Insights identified from a range of primary and secondary research methods directly influence product function and usability, whilst a cyclic design process ensures the evolution of concepts into meaningful solutions. I am particularly interested in the emotional experience of users and how designers are able to create harmonious experiences through the creation of compelling design languages. Following my graduation in summer, I’ll be returning to the user centred design team at Cambridge Consultants as an industrial designer. I hope to continue my development as a designer by working alongside the talented team, offering value to clients and colleagues through my input as I continue in what I hope to be a successful career as an industrial designer.
