Patient-focused spirometry

For US medical technology supplier ERT, Pilotfish employed a user-centered development process—from interviews to testing intermediary solutions with end users—to ensure that the lung function testing device SpiroSphere would improve the experience for all parties involved. SpiropSphere provides a less intimidating procedure for spirometry patients, and for doctors, it enhances the overall experience of spirometry testing through its intuitive interface and streamlined workflows. The system highlights only essential information and reduces complexity by using the latest sensor technologies and interaction possibilities of multi-touch displays. It also eliminates the need for a desktop computer, as it automatically and wirelessly syncs the data from the tests.

Besides the industrial design of the SpiroSphere, Pilotfish was also responsible for creating the patient-facing healthcare application to combine with this device. The Android app created by Pilotfish helps to remind patients to test their health condition in time and to give them feedback about the quality of the data received by the device.
