Awards: IDEA Bronze GOOD DESIGN
Project Description: Medical & Laboratory

Design Team: Cesaroni Design & Health o meter

Health o meter® Professional teamed with the Cesaroni Design industrial design firm to develop an award winning medical device. We began the project with concept sketches and renderings to evaluate a range of aesthetic and ergonomic design options.

The new medical product is constructed of laser cut and brake-formed aluminum. This made the product 2 pounds lighter than the previous model. The lighter weight, centrally located and comfortable handle, and folding capability make the product easy to transport.

The simplicity of the design was critical in order for the unit to be aesthetically appealing in both its portable and in-use positions. Fabricating a product out of aluminum requires attention to every bend and resulting gap. The design team paid close attention to the integration of the fabricated aluminum with the injection molded enclosure. This integration is clean, with compatible form factors and minimum exposed fasteners.

The enclosure for the user interface design is made from injection-molded ABS. The oversized backlit LCD display makes reading easier for the user. The interface design consists of a polycarbonate membrane switch keypad, and the LCD displays a menu for ease of operation.

The new medical design earned IDEA Bronze and a Good Design award.
