iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2020

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2020

COOLDOWN integrates antipyretic syrup packs and disposable antipyretic first aid patches to relieve acute fever in patients in inadequate medical or epidemic conditions. Users can take different doses of COOLDOWN depending on their age and weight, which can effectively reduce fever and relieve discomfort, while also improving convenience and eliminating the unnecessary cost of using multiple products. COOLDOWN is equipped with color-changing hydrogel to determine body temperature, preventing patients from taking needless antipyretics when their temperature isn’t higher than 38.5 degrees.

COOLDOWN is a practical packaging idea aimed at detecting and relieving acute fever by integrating a thermometer, ibuprofen syrup, and a cold compress. The project overcomes the challenge of integrating different materials and various steps through a good user scenario and user-friendly graphics. The project has gained attention since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, where accessibility became another important issue. The original design idea which focused on children and the elderly can also be widened to include travelers, students and scenarios where sterilization of certain tools for different patients becomes crucial.
Jury Statement
Winning the iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD is a great affirmation for us. It increases our commitment to relieving the health and medical problems of the elderly and children.
