Final Project


A compact, portable product which aids the self-prevention and recovery from sports related injuries through quick and unobtrusive hands-free treatments, for both at home or on the move.

Simply attach the straps to InfraLite, fix to the intended target area and select the treatment settings on the device or app.

How it works

InfraLite delivers a combination of red and near infrared light to promote blood flow and natural healing processes within the body, resulting in reduced injury recovery times.

Anything from bruises, pulled muscles to deeper joint pains can all be targeted with InfraLite, which is not always achievable by products such as massage guns due to their incompatibility with certain injuries or inability to penetrate deep enough.

Once recovered, you can still use InfraLite for pre-workout warm ups and post-session recovery to improve sports performance.

Adaptive treatment plans

The InfraLite app enables users to easily manage and track injury progress, while also providing personalised and adaptive injury specific treatment plans to help fitness enthusiasts get back on track.

Auto-generated treatment settings are seamlessly uploaded to InfraLite from your phone, delivering the most effective treatment sessions scheduled around the users daily routine.

Strap Mechanism

Through iterative 3D printing, an quick & easy to use magnetic attachment mechanism was developed to improve user experience of fixing InfraLite to the users body.

User Testing

Through user testing, common pain points were identified in order to redesign and refine certain elements of both the physical and digital product.


InfraLite is manufactured from injection moulded ABS and silicone while being and designed for repair, meaning no adhesive are used so faulty parts can easily be replaced.
