“Design for Medicine” project competition was held between 15-16th November 2018 with 60 students from various universiity, in partnership with Autodesk and with contributions of Acıbadem University Incubation Center and Biodesign Center.

10 multidisciplinary teams were formed by students from Medicine, Engineering and Design Derpartments of Acıbadem, Marmara, İstanbul Technical, Gazi, Karabük, Yeditepe and Middle East Technical University. Teams found solutions to healthcare problems and designed 3D products.

Competition started by the disclosure of 2 main healthcare problems to participants. Then, participants were trained on business models and 3D design. Teams prepared presentations after 2-days of work on the solutions to their problems, then presented their solutions to a jury. Jury selecte the top three teams.

Problems

  1. Patients or eldery in need of assistance have problems such as falling from bed during their treatment or daily lives. This problem can cause severe injuries that leads to death. How can we solve this problem? In addition, when the person falls from bed, how can we transform this event so that the person does not get injured?
