Patient Beds and Pressure Studies

Our design team is frequently engaged in conducting extensive human factors studies for medical devices that must be optimized for patients as well as clinicians. These images illustrate the interim prototypes and testing conducted for the design of the CAT scan table as well as a phlebotomy bed.

Our body scanning equipment enables us to measure pressure distribution of subjects reclined on various bed surfaces. Understanding pressure distribution enables us to optimize materials and contours for maximum comfort.
