UNSW Built Environment: Alumni’s Design Featured on ‘New Inventors’

30 05 2011

UNSW Built Environment alumnus Justine Smith (Bachelor of Industrial Design 2009) was recently featured on the ABC program ‘New Inventors’ with her Spinovo garment.

Spinovo is designed to offer a holistic approach to the treatment of back pain. It provides therapeutic heating, cooling and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) as well as preventing back pain through biofeedback.  Spinovo provides therapy through removable packs which clip into the garment and provide feedback through a remote control interface.

Justine was also a finalist in the 2010 James Dyson Award with her Spinovo garment.
