MediBeacon Transdermal GFR Monitor

Industrial Design / Engineering
Project Description
MediBeacon’s Transdermal Glomerular Filtration Rate Measurement System (TGFR) has the potential to provide important information to Intensive Care Unit professionals to address this challenge.
Project Overview
The goal of MediBeacon’s fluorescent tracer agent-based systems is to provide clinically relevant information that can cost effectively and positively impact patient care. Accurate physiological measurements made at the point of care, are vital in the critical care setting as well as in the management of chronic diseases. Fluorescent tracer agent-based monitoring systems are well positioned to provide measured GFR, GI permeability quantification, enhanced visualization of the vasculature during ocular angiography, and identification of the ureters during abdominal surgeries
Project Approach
One of the challenges of designing medical equipment is to make sure that in an often chaotic hospital environment, the device is intuitive and easy to use. The Speck research and design team spent time doing observations in the hospitals to understand the needs and the environment where this monitor was going to be used. Going beyond industrial design, we developed a UI that seamlessly worked with the physical product to enhance the user experience.
