Dr Ross Head graduated in Product Design BSc with first class honours in 2001, and subsequently a PhD in Digital Design Methodology and Glass Product Design at Swansea Metropolitan University. He then became one of the founding members of staff for Cerebra Innovation Centre, whilst lecturing in Product Design.
Dr Head has expertise in all areas of Product Design, specifically but not limited to design for children with additional needs including R&D, ergonomic studies for children with differing postural and dimensional needs, CAD, field testing, prototyping and manufacture.
He also liaises with industry partners to secure licensing agreements and develop manufactured products.
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.
