Aston's "Smarterials Helps One of its Own

The Smarterial program from Aston is now working with one of its alumni "Karl Obszanki" who has come up with a revolutionary method for testing eyes. Karl worked on the health science aspect of the project as part of his Phd at Aston which he graduated from in the summer, and has now set up his own company to manufacture the product.

As part of the Smarterials ERDF program Aston University's Dr Tim Whitehead is working with Karl on the overall design, both in the look and feel, and in the functional material that the product will be made from. All this done at the same time as ensuring that the technology of the product continues to work in line with the original prototypes that have been through rigorous market research.

When asked Karl said "its been great working with the Smarterials team, having access to their knowledge base in material technology, design and 3D printing has been invaluable to move the project forward to the next level".
