Emilie Fung

My name is Emilie Fung and I am a designer living in Toronto, Ontario. Before entering the Industrial Design program at Humber, I enjoyed crafting, making artwork, and DIY projects. I came to the realization that working hands-on with a variety of tools and materials was something that I wanted to pursue in the future. This interest of mine led me to the Industrial Design Program at Humber College where I was eager to learn more about design methods.

The Four Essential Pillars for Design Excellence

The four essential pillars encompass human-centric design approach and the understanding of full-bodied, three dimensional physical interaction of user, product and environment. The projects generate innovative solutions using research-driven, evidence-based designs which focus on the user experience.

Enhancement of Human Lifestyle

MERA provides flooded regions with access to health care in local areas where health care is limited or inaccessible.

It is a temporary collapsible unit that can be easily transported and deployed into any flooded region. MERA provides a safe and private space for flood disaster victims to receive medical aid from trained health care workers.

Human-Interaction & User-Centric Design

MERA is a collapsible unit that creates an efficient deployment and pack-up process for the user.

The unit includes inflatable and foldable features that allow large components to be easily deployed in flooded areas.

Ergonomics & Human Factors Design

MERA has three main features that focus on ergonomics and human factors that maximize the unit's function and safety.

These features include the shelter structure, driver's area, and safety mesh guard rails. Each component is designed to accommodate for the 5th percentile female and 95th percentile male.

Sustainability & Social Responsibility

Sustainable solutions were taken into consideration for each component of MERA healthcare facility units to maximize their sustainability and to reduce the carbon footprint created throughout the product’s lifecycle.

Highly recyclable materials are used to produce MERA units including aluminum and polypropylene. Specialty materials such as transparent solar cells and renewably sourced sugarcane are also used to produce important components of the MERA units.

MERA - Mobile Health Care Facilities for Post Flood Disasters

Project Statement

Masses of people endure illnesses and injuries after experiencing the effects of flood disasters, requiring immediate medical attention to survive. Resources during flood disasters also become limited due to damages to hospital infrastructure and medical equipment. An increased influx of patients often causes overcrowding in hospitals which can lead to loss of control over communication and organization systems, inefficient treatment, and care for patients, and spread of disease within the hospital. These factors can further negatively affect health care staff and patients, reducing efficiency within the hospital and chances of patient recovery. Research investigations were conducted through surveys, interviews, and articles to determine supporting documents and information regarding health care facility improvements and solutions to overcrowding hospitals. The data collected helped to determine considerations needed for improving health care facilities in certain regions to withstand or adapt to the effects of flood disasters would benefit and enhance the human lifestyle through the increased availability of medical treatment for many ill and injured disaster victims.
