Billy: “I teach music to young people with disabilities and learning difficulties, and I wondered if there was a product that could be developed to help my students feel what the correct style of breathing was whilst learning a musical instrument. So what we’ve worked on could perhaps be used in smart clothing.”

 

Steve: “I thought it was a great purpose for this to be used for, really clever. It’s obviously a product for a specific need, so would have to be marketed correctly, but anything that promotes accessibility and inclusivity has got to be good, hasn’t it. It was helpful that we had Billy’s job as a focus, to think how we could link a product to benefit that. Making a piece of clothing would achieve the purpose, without the wearer having to think about how it’s working.”
