TCM5 FLEX Monitor

Discipline: Product

Considering the time-consuming and costly training for medical devices, we made it our mission to develop an easy-to-use, self-explanatory device designed around the user. Premature babies, people in intensive care or sleep labs: the needs of medical professionals depend on who they care for. We created different modes the device can be set to, each resolving specific challenges identified in each field of use. In neonatal care e.g., a smart algorithm linking temperature and time prevents burns by informing the user when to reposition the sensor. Features like the cable spool further optimize workflows and let the user focus on patient needs.
