Scott Mayson is a lecturer in Industrial Design in the School of Architecture and Design and a member of RMIT's Centre for Additive Manufacturing.
Dr Mayson's current research is focused through two main practice-based streams:
- User-centred design examining how innovative approaches to design thinking principles can create inclusive services and products for society, irrespective of peoples, age or ability.
- Second, additive manufacturing (3d printing) practices through innovative applications in biomedical and product design.
Dr Mayson has developed novel solutions to healthcare product design utilising emerging 3D technologies, including original approaches to biomedical implant scaffolds for anterior cruciate ligament ligament reconstruction.
Recent projects include adapting Google glass to aid breastfeeding mothers (project for the Australian Breastfeeding Association and Small World Social) and a novel adaption of scanner technology for infant biometric data collection in developing countries (collaboration with RMIT colleagues).
