Attention designed, engineered and produced an ergonomic safe control unit only four month after the brief from Coloplast. Controlling air intake and water flow in a single unit requires complex mechanisms and very low tolerances. Attention developed a safe and intuitive solution for operating the irrigation device. The device had to be able to communicate clearly to the user while allowing those with impaired physical mobility to operate it. An intelligent user interface was developed by Attention’s design team while the engineers solved the mechanical puzzle.
Through the integration of a number of robots and other automation devices our system, which stores the sterilised surgical equipment as it exits the Getinge autoclaves, has allowed the hospital to significantly reduce unintended incidents as well as staff, and make their sterile storage facility much more efficient too. The flexibility of the storage exchange is second-to-none, since surgeons can always order urgent deliveries to take advantage of unforeseen surplus capacity in the surgical wards, or in the event that an operation requires further surgical equipment aside from the usual things which were ordered during the operation planning phase. Such unscheduled orders are priority processed and delivered at one of the exit bays a mere 45 seconds after the surgeon has clicked "send" on their local workstation. This ensures that operations may proceed seamlessly regardless of the obstacles encountered along the way, and that operating theatre capacity can be fully exploited at all times. Learn more here.
Idéklinikken is part of Aalborg Hospital, helping staff and patients put their ideas into action. Among other things, Idéklinikken is offering help in the process of how an idea becomes reality. IdéKlinikken were working on a tablet application supposed to combine manual processes, and improve efficiency, related to a GFR analysis done at the hospital. Idéklinikken needed to document the software, to fulfill applicable law on medical device software. Solution: MEDEI made a re-design and documented the solution in coherence with the ISO/IEC62304 standard. The documentation shaped the foundation for the continued development work.
he Radiology department is a highly specialised department conducting 220,000 examinations and treatments annually. This department receives patients from the emergency reception and various wards. Patients are referred here for examinations of all parts of the musculoskeletal system, severe scoliosis and lung examinations. Most patients can walk and are self-reliant, but because several patients have mobility problems or have difficulties walking they need to be seated and supported for examination.
