Wearable wireless medical solutions are changing the way we think. Eric Topol, M.D., calls them the “the control, alt, delete of medicine.”
Presently in the hospital vital signs are taken every 4 hours. In between those checkups is when problems arise. Sotera Wireless’ ViSi Mobile™ is the solution—providing constant data on changes in blood-pressure, heart rate, oxygen saturation, temperature and pulse. The continuous flow of information allows the nurse to respond immediately and prevents life-threatening events.
DDSTUDIO joined forces with Sotera Wireless on the industrial design and mechanical engineering for ViSi Mobile, beginning with detailed ethnographic research. Our first concern was with hospital workflows and how they could be positively affected by a compact, wearable system. The solution had to be good for the nurse, the patient and the hospital.
