Design Note #17
A leading manufacturer of cardiology equipment approached Orchid to provide the electronic hardware, software and mechanical product design for a new line of hand-held twelve lead ECG machines. The design goals: provide diagnostic quality ECG graphics display, in a light-weight, portable, battery-powered, user-friendly package. Provide compatibility with existing Hewlett Packard ECG carts.
Orchid assembled a professional team of mechanical, electrical and software designers. Working in concert with our client’s team of medical doctors and marketing specialists, Orchid crafted a unique, feature-rich product design.
Patient safety is of paramount concern when designing medical devices which contact the patient. Strict testing and design documentation are major elements of the engineering process.
Twelve lead, Hewlett Packard compatible ECG traces can now be recorded at remote locations and transmitted to trauma centers for immediate analysis. Lives saved through well applied high technology.
