Angus innovation helps local community

CeeD member, Angus 3D Solutions, and an Angus therapist have co-designed a portable desktop screen which is enabling community support groups to continue vital face-to-face sessions in a Covid-secure way. 

The 60cm-square polycarbonate screen can be removed from its travelling case, assembled quickly and sit on a desktop thanks to removable feet – allowing support workers to talk face-to-face with their clients on the other side of the screen without the need to wear face coverings.

This enables better support than is possible via video calls through being more able to read clients’ non-verbal communication, allowing greater facial recognition and avoiding the distraction of masks or visors. It also allows children, or the therapist, to draw on it using whiteboard markers.

The screen is already being used by Angus community support organisations to continue vital face-to-face support sessions with the vulnerable people they serve. It is hoped other groups in the county and elsewhere will use the screen to deliver the same benefits.
