Product design: the interplay of function and aesthetics

Dear Sir or Madam,

Whether a product is successful depends on many criteria. Design tends to be less talked about - at least when it comes to medical products. It's time to change that. After all, something that might save a life should also feel good in the hand. In our video, you can find out what ideas are behind some products and what requirements are placed on medical design.

Stay curious!

Product design in medical technology – The interplay of aesthetics and functionality

Video

Particularly in hospitals, a lot of waste is generated due to the large number of disposable products. In the case of cardiac catheters, this is doubly annoying, as they contain precious metals such as platinum and copper. A pilot project has therefore been launched at the Heart and Diabetes Center NRW to return used catheters to the raw materials cycle.

Vocal cord paresis: surgical treatment to reverse paralysis

Topic of the Month

The paralysis of the vocal folds, the vocal fold paresis (also known as vocal cord paralysis) is a condition in which most patients cannot control the movement of the muscles that control the voice. This can make it hard to speak, prompting a reduction in speech volume that makes it challenging to understand the person. Some patients may even have difficulty breathing.
