LED Companion – The Development of a Lighting Solution for Medical Care in the Home Environment
My thesis work at the Master Program of Industrial Design at Lund University in Sweden from 2007. The resulting report and prototype was aimed to find a solution to increase patient security for medical care and assistance in the home environment. As it is steadily becoming an increasingly popular option, but is typically lacking proper lighting as in the heavily controlled hospital environment, patient security is often an issue. A portable easy-to-use solution to give correct light for medical examination and treatment is badly needed. The proposed product is completely sealed and re-chargeable via an induction charger to confirm to standing hygienic regulations.
