SONA awarded BEDA Special Award at TISDC

Megan Lincoln TIDSC award 2

Megan Lincoln (BA Industrial Design and Technology 2021) has been awarded the BEDA Special Award at TISDC 2021, for her design, SONA.

The Taiwan International Student Design Competition (TISDC) encourages international creative design exchange and the theme of TISDC 2021 was ‘Regenerate’. This International Design Association Special Prize was awarded in collaboration with The Bureau of European Design Associations (BEDA).

SONA is a high-powered ultrasound device enabling non-specialist clinicians to carry out a breast ultrasound using Artificial Intelligence to receive instant feedback on the patient’s condition.

The device utilises cameras and infrared depth technology generating a bespoke navigation path clinicians can follow, ensuring whatever the patient’s shape or size, clinicians can be confident they have covered all areas. For women opting for non-invasive monitoring of their breast cancer, Sona provides the opportunity to receive treatment from a local facility with the same clinician providing familiarity, continuity of care and a reduction in anxiety through instant results.

Congratulations, Megan!
