Roderick Walden and Stefan Lie were approached by UniQuest: James Cook University to develop a design, based on an invention by a team headed by Dr. Glen Deakin of the Institute of Sport and Exercise Science at JCU. The invention is a new type of cooling vest for hot intensive working conditions (e.g. fire fighters with heavy protective clothing). The project was managed through Access UTS and its focus was to take the invention from a very rough working model, through to a manufacturable product design. The practice-led research entered into resulted in a prototyped design that is very inexpensive to make and performs with all of the advantages of the invention.
