iol Strategic Design is a design agency with over 15 years of experience in designing medical devices.

Our agency places the same emphasis on patient needs and comfort as on medical treatment requirements. The work we do is guided by an intuitive respect for the user and his or her environment.
We begin by analysing the user's real-life needs and expectations, to enable us to identify any shortcomings that need to be rectified, or any opportunities for improvement and innovation.

Although the product's features lie at the heart of our designs, we also pay close attention to both ergonomics and appearance. This is what sets us apart from the competition, and offers both genuine added value and a competitive edge.

We have extensive experience of designing medical devices, and work in line with the relevant standards. Our solutions deliver devices that are both user-friendly and profitable. We identify the most important elements by creating user scenarios and analysing the service delivered, to ensure that the product is as user-friendly as possible.

We support you throughout the entire process, from the initial concept, through to prototyping and full-scale production of the product.

STRATEGY
We design products with the user in mind, ensuring that they deliver an enhanced user experience and meet user needs. Emotion lies at the heart of our product design strategy.

We have extensive experience of designing medical devices, and work in line with the relevant standards. Our solutions deliver devices that are both user-friendly and profitable. We identify the most important elements by creating user scenarios and analysing the service delivered, to ensure that the product is as user-friendly as possible.
Introducing new products into hospital environments is not always easy, and staff are often resistant to new devices. It is therefore important to take account of patient and medical staff requirements to ensure a smooth transition.

INNOVATION
Although innovation is what drives differentiation, it is technology that creates opportunity. As such, new technology will only be successful if it is used appropriately. The potential success of a patent can only be judged once it has been applied in real life. Innovation can therefore only create value if it is reflected in a well-designed product that meets an existing need.
The possibilities are limitless, but it is critical to decide on the right product from the outset.

METHODOLOGY
We apply retail-oriented methodology, designed to ensure a smooth transition from the initial concept study to full-scale production and compliance with standards. Design is not a luxury. Our production expertise means that we are able to meet all objectives and deliver a product that is both profitable and competitive.
Economic viability is about more than just the cost of the product. It is also about delivering time-saving benefits for the user.
iol Strategic Design has a highly effective team of designers and partners, capable of listening to your customer's needs.
