Seminar Title: Bespoke product design to enable ability

Cerebra is a charity dedicated to helping families and their children with neurological conditions.

The Cerebra Innovation Centre (CIC) is a bespoke product design service offered by national charity Cerebra to its members. The unique strategic vision for CIC means that they are able to respond to individual requests for help and can make small numbers of bespoke products that focus heavily on individual requirements and inclusion into society.

The seminar will take the form of a case study review of three CIC products; A seated tandem surfboard, Triathlon equipment which enables a young girl to participate with her father and a horse riding helmet for a young man with unique head shape, plus a small overview of the work we do.

Public Theatre 1, 13:15 - 13:45, Wednesday 25th.
