ECG monitoring for Intensive Care

ECG monitoring is one of the basic vital sign measurements that is carried out in hospital intensive care units. The sensor setup has to stay on the patient’s body often for weeks, gets unplugged, cleaned and is part of many daily routines of the healthcare professionals. Our goal in this project was to dive deep into this specific context to come up with a conceptual solution that improves ECG monitoring for patients and medical experts.



The sensor is designed to stay on the human body. It‘s minimalistic shape is easy to clean, intuitive to handle and declutters the appearance of patients in general. The cable length can be adjusted easily to fit different body shapes and battery management routines can be implemented in the daily routines of healthcare professionals.

Array reduces the current ECG monitoring setup to an elegant single-line solution that feeds gathered data wirelessly into the patient monitoring system. It helps to streamline the workflow of healthcare workers as they spend less time untangling cables and offers more comfort and better flexibility in movement for patients.

By the way, we also did a pitch video you can watch here: https://youtu.be/xBek8A5_WtY


This group project was created in 2020 as a part of the Advanced Product Design Programme at Umeå Institute of Design. 
The project was carried out in collaboration with Getinge.
