Supporting patients with improved healthcare

09 September 2019

When it comes to patient care the medical profession are always keen to look at new and innovative ways to support and monitor an individual’s healthcare. Throughout their thirty-year history as a medical product design consultancy GX has been at the forefront of healthcare product design.

The products their development team has created range from a compact pager device - the Call Aid, designed for use by healthcare professionals who work remotely. Plus an advanced detection system, the Ferroguard designed to sit across MRI room doorways to warn about any hazardous items. All these products have one thing in common, they are the brilliant idea thought up by people directly involved in healthcare.

“Frequently it is those at the forefront of healthcare, dealing on a day to day basis with patient care, who can see the need for a particular product,” comments business development manager, Claire Banks. “They see first hand gaps in a patient’s care and/or monitoring. It is this frustration that leads individuals to think about what could be done to improve things.

Since their background is medical, they need a design consultancy like us to be able to translate their brilliant idea into a commercial reality.”

Claire, along with managing director of GX, Mark Helmich, are excited to be attending an event focusing on monitoring and supporting patients across all healthcare settings. Co-hosted by MediWales and the West of England AHSN this one-day conference seeks to unite NHS professionals with companies like GX. The conference on 11th September, at Celtic Manor, focuses on the challenges and technical issues faced by healthcare professionals.

As Claire concludes, “Events like this are the perfect forum for us to show how our multidisciplinary way of working can help transform the beginning of an idea into a working prototype, then ultimately turn it a commercial reality.”
