Developing products for clinical settings

Voler developed the next generation clinical lice treatment unit that improved the usability and aesthetics, increased functionality, decreased costs, and improved portability. We provided very tight temperature control: hot enough to kill lice, not so hot it burns a child's head. Voler also added a cellular modem to enable tracking of each use (for reimbursement [...]

Voice Activated Wake Up and Ultra Low Power Design for Medical Devices

Many mobile applications use sensors to monitor various activities- movement, sound, temperature, and the like. The sensors, if "always on" in full power would shorten battery life. Recent chip developments enable applications and devices to operate in a low power mode until they detect the signal that wakes them up and activates them for the [...]

User Interface for Chemical Analysis

Voler Systems developed an instrument that measures turbidity (cloudiness) of water for industrial water processing.  It uses the refractive index of the fluid to measure the volume of minute particles in the water.  The user interface provided control for operational, diagnostic, and calibration functions. We provided a clear and intuitive user interface for the instrument [...]

Self-Care Medical Devices and Health Wearables Require Increased Focus on Design for Human Factors

image source: Human Factors and Medical Devices on FDA website by Walt Maclay Recently, I attended a fascinating panel discussion that explored the increasing importance of understanding human factors and user experience in the design and successful use of a medical device for home care or self-care. Medical devices like insulin pumps and home dialysis [...]
