industrial design / branding
Stryker’s VertePort X4 Manifold is a cement-filling device for loading up to four cement cannulae at one time, affording an opportunity for quicker and more efficient procedures. Our approach to this problem started with journey mapping an entire interventional procedure and understanding key areas for efficiency and improvement. Many sketch solutions were generated exploring manifold designs that improve the process of delivering cement. We worked closely with Stryker’s project team to ensure the solution provided real user value, was mechanically feasible, and cost effective. Design details, surfacing, and color finish and material were all aspects of the product that contributed to building a common look and feel for the Stryker IVS product line.
