  • Do you have a restrictive covenant on your title that is ruining your dreams to develop your property? These are your options for ending the nightmare.

    You have found the perfect site to develop.

  • Mountain or Molehill – the Disproportional Impact of Small Problems

    By David Eliston, Senior Consultant Product Design at Plextek. Sometimes the simple problems are the most frustrating. In a “normal” year I’d be a keen off-piste skier. This often involves a lot of hard and hot work, climbing or skinning up to access un-skied snow. Under these conditions, trying to regulate your body temperature means pulling on and off layers of clothing to suit how hard you are working, whether you’re in sun or shade, whether it’s windy etc. It’s often occurred to me as I’m starting to cool at the top of the climb, that given some bad weather and cold fingers, a jacket zipper that is reluctant to engage could be the difference between life and death. That’s maybe a little melodramatic, but it’s a very simple thing that could have significant consequences.

  • High Times for Cannabis Vaping?

    By Nigel Whittle, Head of Medical and Healthcare at Plextek. The recent news that the NHS is planning a clinical trial of cannabis oil in the UK will come as a relief to many patients suffering from chronic pain, who regularly use marijuana to alleviate their symptoms. Although research is ongoing, there is good reason to believe that non-psychoactive cannabinoids, including THC and CBD, are effective across a broad range of health conditions. Ensuring proper dosing and effective delivery of a ‘clean’ product through technical innovation will be of critical importance to the growing industry.

  • The Physiological Challenges of Spaceflight

    By Guest Blogger Rich Whittle, Bioastronautics & Human Performance Lab at Texas A&M University The recent landing of the probe Perseverance on Mars, and the excitement generated by the high-resolution images currently being broadcast back to Earth, has inevitably started people thinking about human exploration of the Red Planet. However, the challenges faced by a manned journey to Mars are much more than just technical, but reflect some fundamental aspects of human physiology. In this guest article, Rich Whittle of the Bioastronautics and Human Performance Lab at Texas A&M University, reflects on some of the key issues.

  • Gesture control of laboratory instrumentation

    Stephen Guy, chief technical officer at the Plextek and Design Momentum Life Science Partnership, explores how to communicate with collaborative robots in a lab environment. The recent rush to develop effective tests for COVID-19 and the successful roll-out of the vaccination programme has put unprecedented pressure on laboratory staff all over the world. This has highlighted the need for increased laboratory automation, but these environments differ markedly from factory floors, meaning that robots often need to work in confined spaces and integrate more closely with humans.
