 We asked our team what they thought of the evening, this is what they said:

“The most intriguing aspect of showcasing Vitalograph at the recent Explore Engineering event was witnessing the spark of curiosity ignite within young minds. As we demonstrated the intricacies of our devices and the impact they have on healthcare, it was profoundly rewarding to see the younger attendees not only understand but also become excited about the potential of engineering to transform lives. Their enthusiasm and thoughtful questions reinforced the importance of early exposure to STEM fields, making it a vivid reminder of the role we play in inspiring the next generation of engineers.”

Feilim Malone, Learning & Development Manager

“What I found most interesting about the Explore Engineering event was the interest, knowledge and passion of the attendees. To see such young people, still in second level education or indeed even younger, have such enthusiasm for the world of engineering was extremely inspiring. It was a pleasure to be part of an event which nurtures and supports the engineers of the future and I felt excitement in the knowledge that we were engaging with potential future industry leaders at the inception of their professional journey.” – Lisa O’Byrne, Senior Manager – HR Business Partner

“I taught them a bit about the day-to-day role and activities of a mechanical engineer. I showed them the workings of some of our devices in the VitaloPFT Series like the ROV & LAB.” – Jonathan Kennedy, Mechanical Engineer

“I taught students how innovative technologies at Vitalograph like Spirotrac and a Pneumotrac help healthcare professionals analyse and interpret respiratory data collected from patients. I explained the importance of what we do as the displayed data and patterns on our products assist in diagnosing respiratory conditions.” – Adam Moroney, Associate Software Engineer

We wish all the students the very best with their future studies and hope they enjoyed learning about Vitalograph and the innovative field of respiratory diagnostics.
