Collaboration between Ryerson University biomedical engineering and Architectural students in translating the framework of the Opticianado project into a prototype sterilisation wall for a next-generation surgical theatre. This motion-guided prototype seeks to improve the sanitary conditions within a medical surgery room environment, by reducing the number of contamination opportunities through compartmentalization and UV technology. The governing Kinect systems incorporate the use of compact electric motors, integrating custom 3D printed mounts that rotate the magnetic panel system in which various surgical instruments are attached. At the simple wave of a hand, the panels rotate, concealing the instruments within, where they are sterilised by UV rays.
