This specific project focused on improving a users sleep. Our role was to create a thin and comfortable sleep mask design that would allow for early stage mock-up prototypes for testing and feedback. 

Dr Faisal Mushtaq (from the School of Psychology at Leeds University) managed and lead a team of experts creating the unique algorithms that allow this product to be world class in it’s function and sleep stage response. We also collaborated closely with Leeds University to explore sensor position, size and conductivity.

The design shown was an industrial solution based on the available electronics at the time and modelled to a 3D CAD level suitable for prototyping processes. An extensive ‘physical mock-up creation’ process was undertaken prior to any CAD work.

This project demonstrates that through full production understanding, it is possible to create industrial quality solutions for early stage mock-up prototypes that can be used for demonstrations, funding, and/or trial purposes.
