Essential oil inhaler to relieve the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease [Read more]
Auxillium is a refillable inhaler to relieve the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease through the inhalation of essential oils. Users are able to create custom remedies of oils, utilising their individual health benefits to tackle their own symptoms of the disease. The product allows users to create a metered dose of the essential oils, improving on previous administration techniques.
The inhaler sprays a fine mist of a mixture of essential oils and water. The mist eliminates the need to swallow pills which many users may find challenging as well as taking instant effect on their symptoms.
Auxillium - docking station
The docking station is used to store essential oil isolates and water which are used to refill the inhaler with custom remedies.
Auxillium - administration
The inhaler features an ergonomic design which allows for both self and second-party administration for those with more developed symptoms who therefore can’t administer themselves.
Auxillium - exploded view
The inhaler features a custom piston mechanism which is powered by a replaceable 12g CO2 canister to propel the mixture through an atomiser at high velocity so it can be inhaled.
Oculus is a smart white cane for the visually impaired. It uses object scanning technology to assess surroundings and feedback important information about the environment.
Oculus - interface
To reduce confusion for visually impaired users Oculus uses voice as its main control. The two buttons are easily identified by touch as one is raised and the other con-caved.
Oculus - feedback
Feedback is given back to the user through bone conductive headphones and haptics within the handle. The handle also features a torch so the users can be seen by other members of the public for safety.
I am a motivated and passionate industrial designer who is driven by creating beautiful products that solve real user needs
I specialise in designing products that not only look beautiful but offer functionality by answering user’s needs. I use an iterative process of research and design to identify insights which lead to design opportunities. From working at CWD London I have had experience answering real world briefs in a fast paced, collaborative environment gaining valuable technical and communicative skills. I hope to continue my career working for a forward-thinking design consultancy, challenging myself by solving complex problems through design.

'20 Diploma in Professional Studies
From working at CWD London I have developed both technical skills in areas such as Photoshop, CAD and rendering as well as communicative skills from working in a collaborative environment and interacting with clients. From day one at CWD London I was working on real life client briefs across a number of different industries. These have enabled me to develop responses which not only look beautiful but answer their problems, while fitting in their brands design language. Overall, my experience at CWD has led to me becoming a well-rounded designer.
