Hardware & Software vs Cancer

CHALLENGE

How do we create a product for optimal hygiene conditions, with intuitive features that will also function with other other devices in the operating area? CLS is a Swedish high-tech medical device company whose products improve treatment for cancer patients. With their therapy and laser thermo equipment they were potentially able to ease cancer suffering, but they didn’t have the device to do so.

APPROACH

They asked Zenit Design to support them with product and interaction design. Through user insights we would be able to develop the device for intuitive functions and optimal hygiene conditions.

RESULT

Zenit Design helped CLS to develop product design of hardware, interaction design and graphic user interface for the system. This high-tech medical device helps to reduce health care costs for society and improve treatment for cancer patients.

GROUNDBREAKING CANCER TREATMENT

CLS is a successful Swedish high-tech medical device company that specializes in laser thermotherapy for cancer treatment. The basic discovery by Professor Karl-Göran Tranberg is that accurately controlled heating of a tumor stimulates the patient’s own immune system. CLS therapy and equipment can potentially ease cancer suffering for millions of people worldwide. They asked Zenit Design to support them with product and interaction design.

COOPERATION FOR INTUITIVE FUNCTIONS

The main focus for the CLS design project was to create a cohesive end-user experience with intuitive functions and optimal hygiene conditions within the regulatory requirements for high-power clinical laser equipment. The product design should harmonise aesthetically and functionally with other devices in the operating area and be in line with requirements regarding connector outputs and cable placement. Zenit Design cooperated with CLS treatment experts to develop hardware and user interface– casing, controls, display and graphic interface.
