Creating a functional AR app for Sheffield’s Children’s Hospital required us to design and make an elegant solution for charging and docking of the iPad. It’s also acts as a way for us to synchronise and align the digital and physical space.
Our solution was designed with the nurses in mind and requires minimal input. We’ve embedded wireless charging technology into the case and docking station so that the iPad charges automatically.
We chose SLS 3D printing to manufacture the docking stations due to its long term stability and durability which is suitable for use in medical applications.
