Richard Child

BA(Hons) 3D Design*

Richard spent his final year working with the NHS on new designs for crutches and knee braces. At an NHS event Richard presented his work to one of the directors of Hymid Multi-Shot Ltd, specialists in single and two shot injection moulding. The CEO was so impressed he set up a sister company, Hymid R&D Ltd, to employ Richard. He is currently prototyping and doing background research into a series of new medical and healthcare products.

"The NHS staff I worked with linked me up with patients and that's when the professional practice really started to kick in. I got first-hand experience of working with user groups and the demands of a company in the real world. Falmouth gave me the drive to take a project further than the design stage and actually bring it to market."
