Within Kwickscreen, I worked on two main projects; PatientScreen, a grant funded project dedicated to creating an around the bed solution to replace hospital curtains globally due to their ability to become a breeding ground for infections, affecting 1 in 10 people. My second project, ScreenSwitch, involved the integration of differential opacity screens into these flexible and deployable screens which inherently helps nurses monitor patients better with greater privacy.
I worked closely with the R&D team to begin the initial stages of development, looking into newly discovered blue oceans. This included solutions that looked at force balancing prototypes, shock absorbency, and feasibility analysis.
