News - 13 June 2019 - Communication

The Silent Patient monitor Ultimo, developed by students at the Critical Alarms Lab of the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering, has been awarded runner up status for the best design award in the category of health and wellbeing at the Core77 Design Awards 2019. Congratulations to students Nitin Gurram, Marek Torbus, Yuxiang Wang, Anna Gębala, David Schuit, and Doris Boschma.

Ultimo is an Intensive Care patient monitoring system that changes the monitor behavior based on who is in the patient room. It was developed with a vision of silent Intensive Care Unit, which aims to reduce stress and anxiety in intensive care by combatting noise and overbearing alarm signals. It helps to create a calm place for patients to recover, allows visitors to feel less anxious about their loved ones and improves the clinicians work environment.

As runners up, the Ultimo team is now eligible for the Community Choice Prize of Core77. You can vote for Ultimo and read much more about this project here
