“Kjenner lusa på gangen” – is a video, released in 2012, about our lice trap development project in cooperation with Eker Design and the Norwegian Design Council presented by Bård Eker at Norwegian Design Day 2012. Click HERE to watch the video and HERE to read a news item from November 2011 about the project (note that both are mostly in Norwegian).
The research on which the design of these traps is based has been reported in the following publications.
