Matthews, Ed, Art or design object, Working Wall (the Emergency Ambulance project)
|Abstract or Description:||
No previous systematic attempt had been made to rethink the ambulance as a workspace that allows clinicians to treat patients more effectively. Frontline clinicians and paramedic crews comment that their input is rarely sought to improve the design of the treatment space and little research has been published. Matthews built on his earlier research for Future Ambulance (NPSA, 2005–06) and Smart Pods: Taking Healthcare to the Community (EPSRC, 2007–10) to direct the design of a full-size ambulance interior treatment space. His distinctive contribution as an industrial design engineer was to lead on research into the ambulance as workspace, focusing on systematic approaches to patient safety and resulting in the Working Wall concept.
