Tracheostomy – From Stigma to Silver Linings

This product challenges the status quo of medical product design, repositioning tracheostomy tubes as objects that can adorn the body, instead of invading it, without compromising clinical function. It prioritises user experience with magnetic components for easy assembly, elegant and easy to clean forms, and customisable 3D printed construction.
