Medical equipment design experts

We’ve worked on healthcare product design for hospitals, healthcare institutions and emergency services. Whether you see a market opportunity or already have a tested technology – we‘ll help you realise your idea. We talk with patients, doctors and other personnel. We observe them extensively. These research sessions often provide deep insight in what is really needed.

How it looks, how it works

We believe that great functionality and aesthetics go hand in hand. With early prototypes we check the functionality and design with patients, professionals and your organisation. Through these tests, we are able to improve the conceptual design in an early phase.
