Neurological Patient Monitors
GE Healthcare and Farm collaborated to create the ProCare 400, a low-cost patient monitor based on GE’s advanced DINAMAP blood pressure algorithm technology. GE wanted a product that would enhance their existing line of DINAMAP-based monitors without affecting sales of their established, higher-end offerings.
Based on extensive usability research and field studies, Farm created a highly intuitive user interface that replaced the multi-menu structure typically found in patient monitors. The ProCare interface allows users to access information quickly, so they spend less time checking vitals and more time on actual patient care, and features a large, bright display that helps users easily see critical information from across the room. Other features include an easy-to- grasp carry handle, strategically-grouped interaction points and data sets, and versatile mounting options that meet the demands of a wide variety of use scenarios and healthcare environments.
