“The lens shape and softly contoured frame front of ‘Blend’ displays a simple and elegant aesthetic that would be deemed attractive and attainable by a large demographic,” the judges’ comments read.
“The innovation of the magnetic hinge that locks the temple into place, while still allowing movement to open and close them for placement into a case, is a strong conce Full Story »
Have you ever wondered how much information about your health is being collected by doctors, pharmacies, laboratories, and even grocery stores?
Understanding the best way to relay personal health information back to the public to improve their health and wellbeing is an emerging research trend which Flinders University, together with Finnish researchers, is currently exploring.
Flinders researchers have joined forces with the Digital Health Revolution of Finland Initiative – a €6 million (AU$8 million) strategic investment by the Finnish Government for industries and researchers to collaborate and identify ways to coordinate future health services by promoting the central role of consumers in managing their own health.
