System Design for Hypothermia Inducing Device
Hypocore Hypothermia Inducing Device

The basic principle of the device is to rapidly cool fluids before they enter the body for the purpose of reducing further damage to the body until receiving additional medical help. To do this, water is combined with a compound that upon contact begins to drop in temperature. The fluids are piped through the compound and then to the body.

Hypocore Concept Drawings

In the beginning, we assisted our client Novocor with ideation on the overall system design as well as ideation on specific features such as activation and the user interface. As this product was intended to be used in emergency response situations, ease of use was critical.

Novocor Hypothermia Inducing Device Feasibility Prototype

We built functional prototypes to test and verify the design. This included custom vacuum formed parts, urethane and silicone casting, PCBA fabrication, custom formed tubing, and laser cutting.

Hypocore Exploded View

To deploy the design, we created a set of photorealistic renderings and manufacturing packages including dimensioned drawings and assembly instructions. We provided technical support to the manufacturer to ensure a successful transition.
