project description The aim of this design project was to optimize workflow in a dental surgery office, given the intense logistical, handling, cleaning, and sanitation demands for their instruments. Through observation of the processes in the dental surgery room was the starting point for a user-centered design approach. To get to know the daily work of the medical secretary we visited and documented several dental surgeries. Ultimately, all insights were included in the design of a novel tray system for dental instruments, creating an intelligent and streamlined process for cleaning and sanitation. The integration of the devices used and the people who work with them was the main challenge in this project.
