QUICK HELP WITH HEAVY BLEEDING – HARTMANN TRAUMA-BOX
A serious accident with heavy bleeding or a terrorist attack – that is probably the horror of everyone. Everyone hopes that they will never find themselves in such a situation. In particular not as a first-aider. In order to support them and make it possible for laymen to save lives in the event of serious injuries, IVF Hartmann AG has developed the Trauma Box in cooperation with the German Trauma Foundation. On behalf of IVF, QUO accompanied the development of the product from the definition of the requirements, through the conception and prototype to series implementation.
COMPACT, CLEAR AND EASY TO USE
The trauma box from IVF Hartmann contains the most important utensils for hemostasis. These are supplemented by a simple and clear instruction manual, which also enables laypersons to take over these vital immediate measures.
The Trauma Box is strikingly designed so that it is easy to find in an emergency situation. It is planned to place the set at easily accessible locations such as train stations, universities, airports and other public facilities, similar to defibrillators.
DEVELOPMENT OF QUO AG
On behalf of IVF Hartmann, QUO developed a functional prototype of the Trauma Box. QUO carried out an initial needs analysis. The product requirements were then defined, various concepts developed and a production-ready design developed. In doing so, attention was also paid to cost optimisation in production.
In addition, QUO’s industrial designers developed the design of the Trauma Box so that it could be easily seen and quickly located in emergency situations.
The Trauma Box by IVF Hartmann and the German Trauma Foundation is available since September 2019.
