Product Development and Technology Station
CUT's Product Development and Technology Station (PDTS) has extensive computer aided design, engineering workshops and expertise available to develop innovative healthcare solutions for rehabilitation. Allan Kinnear kindly toured the workshop participants, illustrating some brilliant innovations that solve some of the issues associated with the delivery of healthcare, particularly in rural environments.
PDTS pays close attention to user needs and develops novel solutions that work around the resource constraints typically faced. Many of the innovations could also be applied to other areas of the world where similar issues are faced. A few projects involving UK, SA and wider partners were developed during the workshop.
