WORLD GLUCOMETER blood glucose monitor pencil, pen, marker sketches Rhinoceros 3D model + Autodesk Viz render Alias Render

Studies from the US Department of Health & Human Services and Center for Disease Control report that minority groups in the US are more likely to be affected by diabetes. Hispanic Americans, American Indians, Asian & Pacific Islanders, and African Americans are just some of the groups who, on average, are 2 times more likely to have diabetes than white persons. The cause for the disparity is largely placed on the education of the disease within these groups and the ease and affordability of managing the disease. This highlights the need for a glucose monitor whose use is independent of cultural references and language. Its use must be obvious to speakers of all languages, engaging a trustworthy relationship to develop between device and user.

To enhance the education of the diabetes condition, it is important for the device to present the blood glucose level in a context. A range gauge surrounding a standard number display are used to present the same information in two different formats; one broad and one specific.

In order for the device to be used crossculturally, the form must communicate its method of operation without words. The shape of the entire device is used to communicate its function and facilitate its use. A laser lancette is built-in to keep things simple.

CARECART over-the-bed nursing cart for hospitals, group project Adobe Illustrator usage diagrams Cinema 4D renders

problems

solution

Within the healthcare industry:

Functions:

• Aging Baby Boomer population • More hospitals being constructed • $50,000 FFE Price tag (fixtures, furniture, equipment) per room • Reimbursements decreasing

• Ease of servicing a patient room • Convenient for nurses and staff • One-point restock • Grouping disposable items • Mobile work surface

Within the patient room:

Consolidation of High Frequency and Disposable Items:

• Clutter • Lack of dedicated work surfaces for nurses • Time spent by nurses providing care • Sharps container displayed on the wall

• Trash • Sharps Container • Gloves • Small Supply Storage • Large Supply Storage

key ideas • Reduce Cost + Maximize Space = Consolidation • The nurse can be wherever the patient may be 28


29


The CareCart provides mobile and stationary work surfaces for the nurse. On the mobile half, there is immediate access to sharps disposal by using a standard size sharps disposal container common to most hospitals. The drawer allows immediate access to supplies, storing a limited but sufficient quantity of supplies to discourage over-stocking, and encourage disposal between patients. The gloves are accessible at the point of use, with multiple sizes available. Small trash is easily accessible for small, ‘non-hazardous trash’. The stationary dock has several drawers for linens, etc. and a cabinet to store larger items, i.e. bed pans, urinals, emesis basins, suction canisters. It also acts as a dock for the mobile half.

Since the nurse is not carrying sharps over a long distance, this design is an improvement on the safety within the hospital room. The time saved between trash disposal and supply retrieval is also an important aspect.

The CareCart provides a new path for the nurse’s workflow. In prior situations, the path traveled by the nurse was a repetitive process of traveling from patient to supply storage, trash, sharps bin, and sink. The CareCart provides a simplified workflow, bringing everything the caregiver needs to the bed. With the addition of waterless soap on the wall, the act of hand washing is also brought closer.

QUICKPAX sterile drape packaging system Adobe Illustrator diagrams AliasStudio 3DModeling Alias Image Studio Rendering

The current sterile drape market is highly dominated by a few companies whose packaging has a poor layout of information. The different types of sterile drapes within a brand have a similar look and are only distinguished by small text on the front of the package. The visual heirarchy of the information is not intuitive and leaves room for improvement.

As all packaging graphics goes, the ease and speed of readability of the sterile drapes packaging is on the front line of product identification. It is the first thing that determines whether the product will be used correctly and for its intended purpose. In the medical field, critical timing, high costs, and danger to people’s safety sets a high price on mistakes and misuse.

The problem is compounded by the wide variety of surgical drapes housed in nearly identical packaging when viewed from a distance of a few feet. With over 25 types of drapes available, a visual system of organization and identification is necessary.

36


After reviewing Kimberly Clark’s current system of sterile drape organization, a complete list of drape types was created. Kimberly Clark organizes their drapes by surgery type, forcing the drapes to be named by a medical procedure instead of the body part they are covering. The surgery types were broken apart into body parts which were then organized into body zones. By creating these zones, a logical system of organization could be created and associated to a diagram of the body. Within each body zone, the sub-type is identified by a color. In this way, the drape can be identified with a body diagram and a color, eliminating language barriers and knowledge of medical terminology. With proper placement of the body diagram on the sterile drape package, it is expected that the important information can be seen quickly and identified with fewer mistakes.

marta w1: cnn center, ga dome, philips

50


The area surrounding the 1-west marta station is the home to multiple large-scale corporate and civic venues. CNN, philips arena, and the georgia dome are served by this marta station. the station is bordered by a 4 lane elevated highway with traffic moving at 35 mph. There are is a moderate amount of foot traffic from patrons leaving or entering the parking deck on the East side of street. business workers and tourist types make up the majority of people.

it destinations

The site receives a considerate amount of sun, bordered only by structures rising 3-4 stories on either side. There is little greenery in view, with only a few shrubs bordering the CNN center’s façade. flanking the street are metal railings and large concrete buildings with considerable setback. The transit station itself is sunken two stories below the height of the overpass. it creates the feeling of an unwelcoming concrete cave, out of sight from others. The general character of this area feels like a dead-end. The view of the city literally ends, there are endless parking lots below in all directions, and its scale is far out of human proportion.

design proposal The proposed design incorporates successes from the Highline project in New York City and the Decatur MARTA Station outside Atlanta. - Revitalize the area underneath bridges - Promote walking through appropriate scale - Use greenspace for ‘city calming’ - Embrace connectivity to transit - Connectivity between street levels The plan includes new 3 storey structures: - Parking Decks to consolidate parking - 3 Storey Mixed Use (commercial 1st flr) - 3 Storey Residential - 3 Storey Commercial near CNN Center - Elevated bridges connecting Mixed use and Parking Decks over RxR - Greenspace, water, and walking paths - Access roads run along the periphery where appropriate

cast system cast drawings system

All materials have a social context and can often act as metaphors for complex ideas. In this case, the material itself was used a form driver for the individual module. Concrete is a material whose attitude embodies urban life. While its primary role exists as a building material, it soon after becomes a surface for unforeseen uses including a canvas for graffiti, an anchor for the roots of urban plant growth, and a relaxing surface for passersbys. These functions and associated forms can be seen in the final design.

The CURVA cast concrete system operates on a set of 3 principles: 1) each module shall have 1, 2, or 3 branches 2) each module is fit into a 1.5’ x 1.5’ square 3) the modules will self-populate based on a desired height Instances of use were first identified to fill the space. By assigning parts of the system to act as a bench, chaise, and bookshelf, appropriate side elevation heights were derived and the individual modules were applied. The result is a sculptural sentence composed of a masonry alphabet attempting to challenge the typical uses of High Performance Concrete. It speaks of sitting, organizing, touching, and a fresh use for concrete. Used as a purely functional and aesthetic medium, the concrete is translated from a building material to a furniture material and consequently scaled-down to human proportions. With this brings the confrontation of its standard uses while providing the basis for new ones.

goal

market

To create an exploration powerboat for outdoor enthusiasts who are environmentally conscious but still enjoy speed. A major objective is to change the idea of how people perceive powerboats. Using an analogy to the automotive industry, powerboats currently exist as the sports cars of the sea. This leaves the door open to fulfilling the other extreme of the market; the sport utility vehicle. This could change the perception of these boats into the exploration crafts, or SUVs, of the sea.

This powerboat is designed for those individuals who have a spirit of freedom and exploration and need a watercraft to stand-up to their expectations. While desiring to explore the coastal regions of the world, the driver of the boat is aware of nature’s beauty and chooses not to blemish its state. He is able to show his forward-thinking mind set through the eco-friendly technology built into the boat. Needless to say, gadgets galore. Through unique power features including flexible solar panels and water turbines, this watercraft will appeal to those who want to enjoy nature in an earth-friendly way while still maintaining a rugged feel. • Sex/Age: Males 30 - 50 years • Profession: CEO/Stock trader • Also Owns: an SUV, an ATV, & jet ski • Outdoor Activities: Water sports & camping • TV Shows: Survivor, National Geographic, CNetElectronics • Magazines: Men’s Health, Motor Trend, Wired

The choice of materials shows an overall ruggedness, but a definite attention to luxury. After all, this is a state-of-the-art powerboat.

• Product Demand & Price: 250-300 produced in initial production run • Cost: $350,000 USD • Market: North American and Canadian Freshwater and Coastal Sea areas • Environment: This all-weather boat is to be used as a sport powerboat on the open water during the daytime, and an on-water camper overnight. It will serve as an exploratory craft, providing means for excursions to remote coastal locations or day trips on a large lake. This watercraft is perfect for reaching secluded areas in search of the feeling of camping. • Intended Use & Function: This boat will employ advances in technology to create an eco-friendly exploration craft. On-board capabilities such as quick set-up camping tents, GPS, and alternate power systems will provide a feeling of safety and security when in the most remote corners of the world.

On the interior, fine grain leathers will be used on the majority of seating surfaces, with small accents of camouflage to give a tough, outdoors feel. Durability is key on the exterior. Industrialstrength materials will be used to enhance usability and enforce the rugged aesthetic style. Materials such as diamond-plate steel and nubby rubber will be used to cover high-friction surfaces. Accents of brushed stainless steel near the touch points will create a soft experience while maintaining a durable surface. Finally, camouflage patterns and unique leathers speak to the outdoorsman. 113
