SIGMA Helps Redesign Surgical Supplies Stand for USA Market Relaunch

Press release date: May 1, 2012

SIGMA is capable of improving the functionality of various industrial, consumer and healthcare products for relaunch into the marketplace. One example is the surgical supplies stand, which was recently introduced from Europe to the US surgical market by our customer. The global fortune 500 medical supply company identified a 'bell weather' product used for over 30 years in Belgium and German. This seemingly utilitarian supply cabinet plays a crucial role in hospital surgery rooms for efficient organization and on-demand availability of critical surgical supplies. In order to introduce this product into the US market the Surgical Supplies Stand (US Market Relaunch) customer needed to adapt its design to accommodate the different sizes of surgical supplies in the US. So the surgical cabinet drawings needed to be reworked from the metric system to the US Unit system (based on inches) for manufacturing in the US. One challenge was to produce CAD manufacturing drawings in US standards (inches) from old hand drawings (metric). SIGMA helped in this product relaunch for the US by creating a more futuristic look, improving certain features, suggesting design improvements and recommending materials. New functionality was added to allow for carrying, pushing, spinning or connecting the surgical supplies cabinet to the wall of an operating room. The updated product was successfully released by the customer in the US surgical market with new functionality for better productivity for surgeons and their teams.
