Ambulatory infusion pumps are notoriously complicated devices even for medical professionals. The FDA reported 710 deaths over a 5 year period linking many of which to human error. Dosing errors, medication input, and the industries lack of standardisation to device interfaces all contribute to this statistic.
Robins opts for a novel scroll wheel interface allowing the user to control each digit independently during numerical dose entry.
Robin provides automated workflows, intuitive feedback and reassurance for lay users and caregivers whilst maintaining flexibility and custom control for healthcare professionals.
Robins dial interface utilises tactile feedback enabling the user to not only see the changes they are making but feel it too.
The project was developed in iterative cycles of concept generation, prototyping and then evaluation.
Dose Scanner and Medication Cartridge
For lay and infirm users, robin utilises scanning technology as an automated method of dose entry.
Once the medication cartridge is inserted, the drug colour label and a LED link up and colour match to reassure the user there is no disparity between digital and physical drug inputs.
Robins packaging service provides the patient with weekly deliveries of the disposable medication cartridges to their home for the course of their treatment.
I strive to design holistic experiences informed by human behaviour.
Working at a global product development and technology consultancy firm has developed my ability to find clarity in complex problems and integrate with broad multidisciplinary teams. This alongside my inquisitive nature has helped me diversify my skillsets from medical design to illustration and visual storytelling.
