DARWIN / Automated medical record




DARWIN automates medical recording using big data and machine learning. Utilizing “Soli”, Google's ultrasound technology, the DARWIN Wearable tracks every diagnosis, treatment or action taken during the patient’s visit to a medical facility. Every DARWIN Wearable wirelessly connects to multiple DARWIN Beacons, which are spread throughout the facility. These devices enable instant data transfer and indoor navigation. The DARWIN Application uses machine learning to process all incoming data, providing the user with a ready-to-use medical record. As a result, DARWIN enables doctors to spend more time with their patients.

This product is designed with a minimalistic approach. The designer has chosen the right materials and finish, resulting in a high-quality end product.
Wow! We're very excited to be awarded with the iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD 2017. We want to thank the jury for recognizing our efforts, underlining the importance of the issue of automation and the future of human-machine relationships. Thank you!
