Medical design and development of healthcare products

We design medical, e-health and laboratory products that are used in obstetric departments, neonatal units, operating rooms, care homes and laboratories.

labonovum ser-col

Ser-Col helps to reduce the amount of blood taken by patients. Approximately 95% of all blood collected from patients for laboratory diagnostics is discarded at the end of the day. If only 5% of blood would be collected, that would also suffice for diagnostics.

In practice, that would mean that no more blood would have to be collected in tubes via a needle, but that 5 drops from a finger would suffice. The Ser-Col ensures that patients can do this at home, and can send the samples by post to the laboratory.

Ser-Col starts from a special strip of LF paper that separates the blood cells from the blood serum. After this separation, which takes place in thirty seconds, the serum is stable for months at different temperatures.

After receipt at the Labonovum laboratory, the strip of paper with the dried-up serum is processed into liquid serum by adding a special liquid and can be analyzed fully automatically.

fastfocus vsm

This vital signs monitor is continuously monitoring the blood pressure, movements of the patient, oxygen saturation in the blood and a few other parameters.

This information helps doctors to decide to let patients go to the normal wards earlier. Or let people go home earlier, which is both good for patients and hospitals.

The position behind the ear is the best place to measure acceleration and movement of patients. We developed the full product from strategy to manufacturing.

This product helps Fastfocus to use their highly effective measuring technology and software not only in the agricultural market, where it is used to measure well being and medical condition of cows, but also in the medical market.

Potok 300 bio-inactivation device

The Potok 300 bio-inactivation device is a high quality medical air treatment device, specially build for applications in the hospital and for dentists.

The medical device is based on Potok technology used in the Mir orbital station and the International Space Station, using special nano materials and bio-inactivation technology to kill 99,8% of all viruses, bacteria and fungus.

The devices operate in obstetric departments, neonatal units and operating rooms to serve as a highly efficient supplementary infection control device.

PAM e-health systeem

The Personal Alarm Monitor helps care homes to work more efficient, while still offering excellent care. The base unit comes together with a PAM wristdetector, providing patients with blindness, epilepsy, ALS, Duchenne, Muscular Dystrophy, Huntington of dementia a safe and good way of communication with nursing personnel on a distance.

The system makes care on a distance, or e-health, possible, while giving patients real attention and peace of mind.

The system has been designed with both audio and visual feedback, which is unique in the market. When pressing the alarm button, the system is able to speak in 28 languages, giving the status of the call and calming down the patient until a real nurse on a distance takes over.

Also the LED ring gives information whether the call has been received and how long it will take before a nurse will arrive, by showing a countdown.

Philips Health Vital Signs Monitor AM3

Niko 5G medisch tablet

By means of this newly developed tablet computer, residents of care-homes can life longer by themselves and easily control many things in their homes, like heating, lighting and ventilation.

Because of the excellent audio characteristics of the product, a conversation can be set up with medical personnel on other locations. An integrated camera helps to set up a life chat with a doctor.

The product is powered by a powerful low energy 1.6Ghz Intel Atom processor, with fast integrated SSD memory, so that a smooth response of the system is guaranteed. Controlling the product is done by a multitouch capacitive touchscreen, known from modern smartphones and consumer tablets.

PAS personal alarm

A medical alarm system, where the user can call for assistance in the hospital or care homes.

The rubber strap is designed in such a way that while the patient sleeping and turning in bed, the cable can never become dangerously attached around the patients neck.

Observations and sessions with medical personnel helped us to design a product that was closer to the daily routine of the medical staff, fitted their mental model better and made their work easier, while taking away the danger for the patient.
