Iuvo: a fully self-contained, large-volume auto-injector supporting patients with adrenal insufficiencies.
Iuvo is the first-ever multi-use autoinjector aimed at patients with adrenal and pituitary conditions, delivering 100mg of Solu-cortef. The device replaces the current manual needle-and-syringe solution on offer with a simple-to-use, fully self-contained unit.
The device uses text, graphics and haptic feedback to guide the user through the process so anyone can use it, even if they have no knowledge of the condition or how the injector works. The user simply twists the top of the device to mix the Solu-cortef and solvent. Once the device has been shaken, it is ready for injection in the outer thigh.
The mechanism inside the device helps streamline the process to the minimum number of steps possible by combining a number of functions into one. The disposable front half of the device contains just the needle, spring and medication vial. The electronics and piercing tool are in the re-usable rear part.
Ivuo companion app
The app is a key resource for sufferers, their friends, family and colleagues. It shows them precisely how to use the injector, but perhaps more importantly, when to use it, especially if the sufferer is unable to guide them. The app provides clear instructions and even video demonstrations to help users administer the injection in stressful, pressurised situations.
Iuvo companion app
It is imperative that the user keeps their injection kit in full working order with the medication and solvent within their use-by dates; the app has facilities to make this simple for the user to do - notifications remind the user when this is imminent, the battery level is highlighted and local hospitals and emergency services are listed.
OR society events app
In the summer prior to placement year, I worked at a small charity in Birmingham - The Operational Research Society. During the few months that I was there, I oversaw the switch to a new event app provider and devised the technical framework for loading data into the app to ensure critical information such as the schedule of talks was presented in an optimal way.
EatBy food management app
Designed as part of one of my final year modules, EatBy is an app that helps students and multi-occupant houses manage their food to prevent unnecessary waste. By cataloguing everything in the user's fridge, freezer and cupboards, EatBy helps keep track of ingredients and suggests recipes to help use up food before it goes out of date.
As an aspring UX/UI designer, I have a keen eye for detail, passion for design and I’m eager to learn more and further enhance my skill set.
I'm interested in all elements of the design process, from conception to completion. My best work comes from projects that have a strong focus on the user's experience, both in digital and product design. I'm an inquisitive designer with a keen interest in creating intuitive experiences with a focus on users' needs. The range of projects undertaken as part of my degree coursework demonstrates my adaptability, from app and product design at Loughborough, to web design during my year in industry. My time at Ticketmaster gave me a chance to engage with different challenges in a professional environment. Working with clients across Europe allowed me to challenge my designs in a variety of different cultures and languages. In my career, I want to be challenged, to continue to learn and develop my skills, and have fun along the way.
