Innovation within boundaries
The design of a medical product faces many guidelines and constraints in order to ensure the safety and hygiene of practitioners and patients.
To develop a successful medical product, a designer is challenged to meet that criteria while exercising their skills in ergonomics, applying their knowledge of manufacturing techniques, and following their innovative instincts.
Because design for the medical environment changes rapidly, it is usually essential to have a strong research and ideation phase at the beginning of a project. There are many crucial product innovations yet to be created and new generations of patients to be helped as technology and medical science advance.
