Here’s a new range of terminal devices designed to read smart cards for professionals in the medical world. This concept project has been designed as a proposal for KAPELSE, a company that creates innovative e-Health solutions by providing simple and secure way to monitor their patients at their place of residence.
The main goal of this design study was to design three e-health solutions, around the Carte Vitale (e-health card) for professionals in the medical world. The design team worked firstly on the identity range, for a consistent design between different solutions, and secondly, they worked on the design of each of the product solutions within the constraints of use (fixed solution, mobile solution, on shelves solution).
The Carte Vitale is the national French health insurance card. It is used by doctors to prescribe drugs and keep track of all patient’s medical records. Hospitals and visiting nurses also use the same card for the same reasons. Pharmacists use it to check the prescriptions before delivering drugs. People use the card to show their health coverage, and pay only their tier, the health system paying the rest of the prescriptions.
Sequoia Studio explains that the medical world is relatively sober in terms of design research (including formally speaking). The products are usually complex, hence the trend to bring simpler, even minimalist designs, straightforward designs which put forward the function of the product, rather than its technology. There is a game of contrasts in colors and lines of forces, to formally structure the product.
The K-line’s style will be between the Medical Universe board (very codified and simplified in terms of color and shapes) and the Inspiration board (strained curves, suggestion of technology, tactile pleasure); simple lines and a color scheme to link the K-line to the medical world, and to softness and sensuality of current technological products.
