This presentation discusses three projects developed as part of a studio based Industrial Design course. The course focuses on introducing students to human anatomy and physiology while retaining the traditions of a design studio education, where ‘making’ is a fundamental and essential research tool in the creation and validation of design concepts. Design Physiology is a novel demonstration of how new methods of making can be exploded by students to achieve a unique and innovative understanding of human anatomy and physiology.
