Product
Bilirubin Screening Device
The bilirubin infant screening device is used to analyze newborns for high bilirubin levels. Its noninvasive optical technology measures skin coloration and calculates bilirubin levels without the need to draw a newborn's blood or order an expensive laboratory test.
Interface
Bottle Wash/Fill App
We supplemented our industrial design and mechanical engineering services for our client's new bottle cleaning and refilling station with software design and engineering for a new mobile app.
Research
Emotion Impact Interviews
We conducted "emotion impression trials" with attendees of a large medical trade show to determine the emotional impact of our client's device as compared to their competitors' - mimicking the first encounter a home health care professional might have.
Engineering
Oxygen Blender
Our work included mechanical and electrical engineering, and the blender's industrial design based on initial forms created by our client's industrial design team. Challenges included working within pre-defined enclosure envelopes and reducing motor and airspeed noise.
