VERIFY

Drug scanning + clarification tool

Verify is a handheld tool that assists paramedics when administrating drugs. Helping to prevent medication error caused by confusing or frustrating labels, while providing reassuring access to supporting drug information and uploading patient treatment information during stressful situations. 

Verify was a joint collaboration between laerdal Medical (Norway) and Umea Institute of Design (Sweden) over a 10 week period. Research and synthesis was undertaken between 10 designers, before individuals developed an area of interest from ideation to refined concept and prototype.

Verify assists when setting up syringes, protecting from any sharp glass and providing stability in stressful situations.  

“Although I have been here for more than 20 years, it’s still impossible to remember everything in this book”.

UNCLEAR LABELS

The same medicine with differing labels are hard to read and cause confusion. 

MANUAL LABELING

Custom dosages require manual logging that often results in a loss of information.
