Axxium Ltd designs, manufactures and sells electrical and wirelessly operated locks, particularly for doors and windows in assisted living environments. Wheelchair users and people with restricted mobility face considerable challenges in opening and closing doors and windows and moving freely around their homes. Admitting carers and visitors to their premises and security can also prevent problems.
The UH Knowledge for Business (K4b) project entails further development of the electronic control PCB from prototype to production. An intern and placement student from IUT Rennes was part of the team delivering the knowledge based in support of the delivery for Axxium Ltd. The project was successfully delivered and Axxium is now producing locks based on the control PCB developed at UH.
