Elektra's latest proposals

  • Vending Machine Concept

    This is an idea developed by the openLab team sleeping clean beauty, and one of three which were presented on concept delivery on the 15th March. Based on the challenge presented to us, and the material gathered during the emphasize phase, we have constructed a concept with goals on what we wanted to improve with the existing anesthetic trolley.

    The goals we have with the vending machine concept are (without internal order);
    1) easy access to products
    2) reduce waste
    3) maintain hygiene protocol

    From observations and conducted interviews, we discovered that one of the key elements of the trolley are the plastic top drawers. Today these drawers are packed with syringes, and designed in a way which by reaching for one syringe, another easily drops to the floor by mistake thus contaminating the material as well as the hand that has to pick it up.

    So if we look at the existing trolley of today, instead of these top plastic drawers, we want a design which reduces the risk of syringes falling down to the floor when reaching for a product. To solve this problem we were therefore inspired by two design concepts, which has similar goals of use but in another setting.

    The first one is the function of papers towels, which are designed so that only one paper towel at a time is supposed to leave the container, while the rest remain clean and untouched.

    The second design is the selecta machine, usually found on train platforms, and from which the product you buy is delivered one at a time through the turning of a tube on which the products have been placed on.

    Our proposal is to make a dispenser that releases one product at a time. Such a dispenser would replace the plastic boxes that are currently placed on top of most of the anasthetic carts. For example if one needs 2 syringes, one would press a button to release first one and then a second. We visualize the dispenser having a see-through surface which makes it possible to spot when the stack of products are running low. For example we could place a red marker on the side of the dispenser, which tells the user that once the syringes reaches this level there are only for example 10 left.

    The vending machine concept is based on solving usage problems for the plastic top drawers, by providing easy access of material and thus reducing unnecessary waste and also to avoid placing the user in need of extra sterilization of hands and materials. This is only as rough concept, in which we see potential and possibility to add other designs.


Elektra's latest prototypes

The Magic Button

The project team Sleeping Clean Beauty have developed a concept to help with efficient handover. Our original concept suggested an easy tool as to help the nurses signal to each other if a cart had been restocked with material or not. From this simple design sprung the foundation to what we now call The magic button. A simple, yet magic, button that signal to the next shift in which state the anesthesia cart has been left. We visualize the magic button concept as an app, through which scanning of a QR-code will either ask you to check and restock the cart, or let you know that it’s ready for use. The app also keeps track of the amount of material present in the cart, and produces an inventory list of what needs to be refilled from storage.
