When design is a matter of life and death
We gave GE Healthcare’s Carescape patient monitors a design that supports their use in critical situations. Different models have been developed for intensive care, and for following the patient when moving between wards or hospitals.
Theater of life
Designing for critical tasks is not about the devices, but about the people and their operating environment. Our design work is founded on studying and understanding the medical professionals’ work, and then designing the workspace layouts and the monitors for smooth, efficient and error-free operation.
Portable & customizable
Healthcare work is hectic. Situations change. Patients and equipment need to be moved – sometimes using ambulances or helicopters. We designed the patient monitors for ease of lifting and carrying. Plug-and-play modules can be conventiently connected to the monitors to customize their functionality on the fly.
