Enzyme storage / dispensing

One area that has gotten some attention while we've been thinking of ideas is this problem of having to carry around enzymes to take during the day. I thought a new discussion might help act as a…Continue

So as with many of you, my treatments (ie Vest and compressor) are out in the middle of my floor by my desk. I always thought that it would be nice to have a "treatment cabinet". It could be made out…Continue

Happy Easter

Posted by Matt Dexter on April 1, 2013 at 14:12 0 Comments

Hello all,

I hope this Easter time has meant that you've been able to take some time off to relax and have some fun. It's still holiday time here in the UK, but there has been some great progress in the development of the Enzyme dispenser, and it's gotten to the point now where we're ready to send out some for people to test. I'll individually email people to see if they would like to have an Enzyme dispenser sent to them, and if so I'll put something in the post & send it out…


Enzyme Dispenser, week 1 - Initial Ideas

Posted by Matt Dexter on January 14, 2013 at 20:59 0 Comments

So this week is the first week for the Enzyme dispenser workshop.

Last Friday, I met with Ben- he's the guy who will be making the electronics for the Enzyme dispenser- and discussed what is needed, and how this might affect our design. After talking to Ben, there really isn't too much of a problem with the electronics. The system is very simple... just a push button (like on mobile phones from a few years ago), a tiny clock, and a microchip to record everything.

Happy New Year

Hello all,

I hope that you all had a great time over Christmas, and that 2013 turns out to be an excellent year for everyone.

It's been great to welcome so many people to the site, and also exciting to begin to get some interest in the projects building. Just before Christmas, I blogged about a meeting with the CF doctor here in Sheffield, and how the project to develop a prototype enzyme dispenser has been approved. I thought I would try and explain things a bit further, so…


More on the Exciting Opportunity...

Posted by Matt Dexter on December 23, 2012 at 13:16 0 Comments

Just a quick note, as I've just heard:

The industrial partner has committed to the work we'll be doing here! It's all go. I'll blog again with any more developments and updates. Until then, on this Christmas eve- eve, I hope you are all well,



If you're reading this, then you will already have accepted an invite to come and do some design work together. I'm really excited to see what we all come up with.

This way of working is very new, and so there isn't a set precedent for how it might look. As such, this social network and all of the activities we do are open for comment- if something isn't working, if you'd like to see a particular feature, or if you have a better idea about how we could work together then post it in the Design Forum!

Remember that no idea is a bad idea!
