ased on the design project of the FoZa Basic armchair offered for blood collection points, a product dedicated to blood donation points was created.
General design assumptions
Treatment chair dedicated to blood donation stations. It can be equipped with: dialysis stations and chemotherapy.
The design of the chair is made of steel profiles and pipes covered with powder varnish, resistant to UV radiation, mechanical damage and disinfecting and cleaning agents. The chassis of the seat is equipped with a chassis with individual rear wheel lock.
Segments of the seat, backrest and lower leg are upholstered. The backrest segment has a cover made of ABS plastic. Adjustment of the angle of the back and seat back segments is carried out by means of gas springs by releasing the appropriate lever.
The scope of completed design work
Scope of work on the design project – it included the development of a product development strategy – implemented in 2014 and the development of a design product which is an extension and giving new functionality to the version of the FoZa Basic chair made in 2015.
The full technical documentation and technical file were made (product operating instructions and documents necessary to register the medical device). All the design work and author’s supervision over the implementation of the product for production was carried out by the WÓJCIK DESIGN. team. The chair was launched on the market in the first half of 2016.
Innovation of the applied design solutions
Theinnovation in the design of the treatment chair design results from the development of such a construction that gives the possibility of creating versions that differ in functionality but are stylistically coherent.
The trendelenburg function offered as a standard on a gas spring will ensure the safety of the donor and facilitate the work of the staff. Additional options: headrest, integrated pad (with the possibility of mounting at the customer’s right or left side of the chair).
The design effect achieved
The resulting construction based on the design project of the FoZa Basic treatment chair. In the designs of both armchairs, widely understood material unification was applied. Where possible, the same parts and components were used, which has an impact on the optimization of production costs.
