Breast Cancer Gown (2019 - Ongoing)
This project has been initiated by Dr Mitra Safavi-Naeini of ANSTO.
This project is a multi-disciplinary collaboration between the fields of Industrial and Fashion Design, Textiles Technology and Nuclear Medicine.
This project addresses the need to both protect the human body during radiation treatment, expose the breasts to radiation treatment yet afford dignity and respect to the patient during an extremely stressful time.
RMIT researchers Dr’s Glover, Houshyar and Interlandi have created a cross disciplinary team to work with Dr Mitra Safavi-Naeini of the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation. This unusual ‘wearable’ tech project takes a cross disciplinary approach between the methodologies of science and design to develop medical technology from a User-centred perspective.
