Matthew is currently undertaking a PhD in design in collaboration with Prince Philip Hospital, Clinical Research Centre, which is part of Hywel Dda University Health Board.
Matthew has a background in Industrial Design, with prior knowledge in 3D scanning and printing technologies developed during his time on a European funded project which he will utilise in the PhD investigation.
The investigation will ask the question: Can a bespoke respiratory face mask be designed and produced using low-cost 3D scanning and printing technologies which meets the clinical and ergonomic needs of individual patients and improves on the performance and user experience of current products?
