The iF Design Talent Award 2021 shortlists the project of IED student Anastasiia Kuliabina
The iF Design Talent Award 2021 has shortlisted EMA by former Product Design student Anastasiia Kuliabina, a proposal aiming to improve the experience of wireless electrocardiogram (ECG) testing for children.
EMA, conceived by Kuliabina as a final study project, is one of the designs selected by a jury of 43 international experts in the first round of this prestigious competition, which receives almost 10,000 applications from young talent around the world each year.
The former student’s cable-free design simplifies the work of medical professionals and makes the ECG testing experience for the paediatric patient more bearable, and even fun. The test equipment consists of only 10 coin-sized sensors, synchronized with a central receiver, and is made from material that is easy to disinfect.
The iF Design Talent Award annually recognizes those projects by students and recent graduates that best respond to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals across their different categories.
