Product
Touch Screen Sampling Pump
The new SKC AirChek TOUCH Sample Pump is the first personal sampling pump equipped with a color touch screen. Daedalus partnered with SKC, Inc., to bring this first-of-its-kind sampling pump to market.
Interface
Sleep Therapy Device Interface
Working with our client, we helped design the interface of a positive airway pressure sleep therapy device. The interface design considered context of use, featured large easy-to-navigate menus, and used easy-to-understand graphical elements to display patient and caregiver facing data. Features within the interface, such as connecting patients with care teams, are designed to increase patient acceptance of and compliance to the therapy.
Research
Train Control Evaluation
When the Interoperable Train Control consortium developed a positive train control system to support crews’ adherence to movement authority limits and to prevent unsafe movement, they asked Daedalus to perform the FRA-required human factors analysis.
Engineering
High-Speed Pill Dispenser
Using the client's core pill counting technology, we provided full design and engineering services to create a system with a smaller footprint, greatly increased capacity, and important innovations such as the patented flex gate to control the flow of pills and a drawer interlock system to upgrade security.
