CUTTING EDGE PATIENT MONITORING
On hospital wards, continuous monitoring of patients has always been challenging. With twenty-four patients on a ward, the amount of data collected makes it impractical. No doctor or nurse could ever interpret so much information. As a result, patients are only intermittently monitored. It takes about 15 minutes to collect one patient's vital sign observations manually.
Snap40 has developed an automated risk analysis and continuous wearable vital signs monitoring system to allow health services to easily and quickly identify patients at high risk of becoming sick in hospital.
Filament worked closely with snap40 to help develop their wearable monitoring device and charging station. The product is in advanced medical trials and will be used by the NHS from early 2018.
BARISTA QUALITY COFFEE ON THE GO
The secret to a great coffee is simple: high quality, freshly ground beans and fresh milk. For years vending machine coffee has had a terrible reputation, and rightly so, because manufacturers opted to use the easy option of instant coffee and powdered milk.
Halo achieves barista quality coffee by pairing the best home-roasted beans, ground only at the point of sale, with refrigerated, fresh milk. A user-friendly touch screen interface guides you through the process of creating your perfect espresso, cappuccino or latte, with options for decaf and skimmed milk.
Filament worked with client Matthew Algie to develop the overall design of the machine, as well as the mechanical engineering of the front door unit and how this interacted with the machine frame. This involved close collaboration with the client, along with co-suppliers Screenmedia (screen interface design), Stellex (machine frame), and Tactic (electronics).
CHANGING WHAT MOBILITY MEANS
Freedom One Life are bringing a game changing 21st century power wheelchair to the market. The founder, Alex Papanikolaou, created FOL due to the limitations of the stagnant powerchair market which he experienced firsthand.
Current chairs are heavy, have extremely poor battery life, dont fit anywhere. The Freedom One chair has been designed to be less than half the weight, 6 times the battery life and dissassembles in seconds for ease of transport. This coupled with a unique one piece seamless frame means it’s extremely durable and ready to take whatever life throws at it.
FOL’s vision To inspire and empower those people living with physical disability. To enable those people around the world to expect and demand the same standard of living and mobility that an able-bodied person takes for granted.
BRINGING THE MOUNTAINS TO YOU
Why is it that Kenyans and Ethiopians are so successful at Olympic track events—or why the athletes who train in those countries often cross the finish line first in major marathons? The answer may have far less to do with drive and determination—and everything to do with elevation.
Altitude training has been used by elite athletes for a number of decades yet this has generally been reserved for those who are time rich and with deep pockets. That is until now, the Altium i10 is an affordable, portable and effective means of simulating altitude from the comfort of your own sofa, allowing committed amateurs the ability to see the same gains as the pros.
Filament worked with client Scotlab Ltd to develop the i10 device from initial proof of concept to market. This accelerated development took only 18 months from start to having landed product ready to sell.
RIDE FASTER, FURTHER, RECOVER QUICKER
Elite cyclists are dedicated to efficiency: Percentage savings on energy spent; maximising power output; ensuring smooth transmission, all play a major part in reaching their goals.
The Revo Flaer is the world’s first chain performance system. It offers maximum efficiency by applying a precise quantity of specially developed fluid to the riders bicycle chain, giving maximum power transfer to the wheel, smoother gear shifts and visibly cleaner transmission.
Filament worked with client Scottoiler Ltd to develop the Revo Via - the flagship product for their new brand, Flaer. Working alongside their internal engineering team, Filament lead the aesthetics development and design for manufacture.
AWARD WINNING COUNTERFEIT DETECTION
Innovia Security manufacture the world’s most sophisticated banknote substrate - Guardian®. Currently issued on 80 denominations in 24 countries, the popularity of polymer banknotes around the world is growing.
Having already worked with the team at Innovia Security on a number of smaller counterfeit detection devices, Filament were approached to design a laboratory device that went further than simply detecting whether a note was fake or not – the resulting VerusTMLab is an analytical device that has been developed to forensically examine both the physical and optical properties of polymer banknotes and compare the resulting data to specific criteria found only in Clarity™C substrate - the base material for all Guardian® polymer banknotes.
Verus™Lab was specifically developed for banks, police and forensic laboratories.
