Attention developed an instrument bridge designed for precision and elegance. Ergonomics and balance were the key concerns as Attention set out to explore the user situation. On-site innovation workshops allowed patients and dentists to co-create with Attention’s design team. A need for individually adjustable features was identified. Workshop output went into the Attention think tank where sketches and ideas were developed into concepts for easy use of and interaction with the XO Care system. Attention’s engineers conducted tests to ensure that each instrument could balance perfectly on the dental surgeon’s finger for complete control.
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.
Project made for KMD. KMD needed a platform to be used by both healthcare professionals and patients, to communicate with one another, and review physiological measurements done by patients at home. MEDEI designed, and developed a cross-platform application to be used in a telemedicine project named TeleCareLink. The application was implemented with KMD and tested in different municipalities in Copenhagen. MEDEI created a solution, which could visualize data generated and acquired from two different partners, utilizing both HL7 standards and MEDCOM’s chronic-dataset.
Apart from working in his clinic and developing equipment and work stations, Herluf Skovsgaard teaches dentists and assistants about work methods and layout of clinics. In 2013 Herluf Skovsgaard's book, 'Dancing Hands,' was published - a textbook for dentists and clinic assistants on organisation, work place design, work methods, precision work and teamwork. In 2007 the chair VELA Samba 150 was developed in collaboration with Herluf Skovsgaard. The chair is extremely well suited for the work tasks in the dental clinic.
