MediPlast - Ear Suction Handle
Case: Improved usability through the redesign of the handle piece for an ear suction set
MediPlast is a Swedish distributor and manufacturer for a variety of medical products, particularly ear suction sets, for the Nordic region. They approached Eye-D when they began receiving feedback from practitioners that the handle for their existing set was too small.
Field studies and end user testing
Redesign of handle
Manufacturing collaboration (Advising/consulting)
The process included agile iterations of the packaging design with quick CAD redesigns, rapid prototypes, and client feedback with close cooperation with the tool makers.
The aim was to design a suction set handle that included a better tactile grip through hole features and complex tool cores to enable easy and precise suction control.
Eye-D delivered the final product in close cooperation with the toolmakers in order to achieve a quick time to market.
