The Charging Station

The charging station shown is where the buzzers are docked when not in use. Charging stations will vary in size depending on the size of the ward and the number of staff. The Healthcare Worker must simply touch their employee card on the scanner provided, and a buzzer will be released, this allows the individual's data to be collected and tracked.

App Interfaces

In order to encourage compliance with the system, tracking individual and team performance is available through the app. The app also allows for infection control to monitor where contaminants have been identified throughout the hospital, meaning they can be contained easier.

Ideation and Prototyping

The water drop shaped buzzer is manufactured with minimal dirt traps and conveniently clips or fits into a pocket without disturbing the Healthcare Worker in their usual duties. These were some of the key design constraints during the ideation and prototyping process.

The System

The Scanwash charging stations are to be stored in locker staff rooms, so they are stored away from the public. The buzzers are wirelessly charged with the charging coil running through the small pegs that protrude from the main unit.
