We are looking for a passionate and skilled Industrial Designer

About Lanefyld

The Lanefyld rollator prevents rollator related accidents. With our product we enable nursing homes to provide better quality of care for their residents and reduce healthcare costs. 

Lanefyld wants to become the “Tesla” of the rollator market. 50% of all people using a rollator are doing so incorrectly which causes lots of accidents. These accidents can have a significant impact on a person’s life as they can become isolated, are unable to live at home or sometimes even pass away. 

In order to solve this problem, we utilize smart technology to assess if an accident is about to happen, just like Tesla. In case of a dangerous situation, the system automatically activates the electric brakes in order to stop the accident from happening. We combine our technology with a beautiful design because we believe that functionality and aesthetics should always go hand in hand.

As an intern you will work side-to-side with the 2 founders of Lanefyld. The main topic that you will be working on is researching and developing methods to detect potentially dangerous situations and the implementation of these methods into a prototype. You will be in close contact with end-users and stakeholders to test your hypothesis and prototypes.
