Design Firm Creates Life-Saving MRI Machine For Newborns
The Embrace Neonatal System is an easy-to-use and patient-friendly scanner
Global design firm frog and life-science company Aspect Imaging have partnered to create a new MRI machine designed specifically for newborns. Their aim is to use a human-centred design process to help increase efficiency for hospitals and make processes more comfortable for patients.
The Embrace Neonatal System is a newborn baby scanner that is easy-to-use and patient-friendly, designed from the ground up to meet the needs of users. To help evaluate and co-create, frog brought in experts throughout the product development process, such as nurses, specialists, radiologists and administrators. Immersive research took place in clinical settings, including Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU), in order to map workflow and identify ways the units could be optimized for different contexts.
