SPHYGMO HAND / Medical product


iF concept design award 2012

iF concept design award 2012

This product was developed for use by the elderly and health professionals. The elderly often have difficulty in putting on the cuff; this model has been equipped with a bracelet inside the cuff that automatically wraps around the arm for easier handling. Another big advantage is that the medical staff no longer needs to carry around the actual device. Instead, they can wear it like an armband with a badge to identify themselves to be able to work more quickly and easily and to help save more lives.
