Stem Aid UK is a kit that enables women to donate the stem cells in their menstrual blood, transforming ‘waste’ blood into a source of cell therapy. This safe, painless, easy-to-use kit makes it possible for users to provide treatment or even save a life with each menstrual cycle. Stem Aid UK donors receive a custom menstrual cup, with an app to track their period, and a network of support and guidance. The kit safely collects and preserves the donated menstrual blood as it is transported to a laboratory for processing. The information and assistance offered by the app and website provide support, guiding donors through the process and connecting them to other women doing the same.
For as long as I can remember, I've loved designing; as a child, I designed wonky slippers, crazed pop-up books, and terribly-constructed biscuits. Now, I strive to make people’s lives easier, safer, healthier, and more fulfilling with my designwork. I’ve particularly enjoyed designing beautiful but functional accessible bathrooms as a group project with Dolphin Solutions Ltd., designing for mental health with the Design Council’s Design Academy, and now designing for women empowerment and improved healthcare.more
