Raymond Daniel

Hi, I’m Ray. To me, Industrial Design combines customer service, art and engineering to solve problems. The design process is so intriguing to me. It follows a structured procedure built on pillars: empathizing, ideating, developing, prototyping and testing. Each pillar is bridged by creative thinking to arrive at a final product.

The Four Essential Pillars for Design Excellence

The four essential pillars encompass human-centric design approach and the understanding of full-bodied, three dimensional physical interaction of user, product and environment. The projects generate innovative solutions using research-driven, evidence-based designs which focus on the user experience.

Enhancement of Human Lifestyle

The ZEROCODE Smart Stretcher Mattress system is designed to fit most existing ambulance stretchers allowing paramedic services to upgrade their fleet easily.

Additionally, one major benefit of the ZEROCODE system is the reduction of wires connected to patients.

Human-Interaction & User-Centric Design

The ZEROCODE system fits right into the fast-paced world of emergent care.

It provides paramedics and medical staff with clear, concise patient information. Data collected during patient transport is stored in the Smart Mattress and remains bedside the entire time.

Ergonomics & Human Factors Design

Since anyone is susceptible to becoming ill or injured, the ZEROCODE system is designed to accommodate various statures ranging from the first percentile female to the ninety-ninth percentile male.

Pressure cones support the air-filled inner mattress and passively adapt to most body types.

Sustainability & Social Responsibility

Sustainability and medical products may seem like opposites.

The ZEROCODE system’s robust, three-part TPU construction can be repeatedly disinfected for years. Additionally, since the mattress contains no foam, paints or adhesives, it can be separated and recycled. The Smart Blanket is made with PLA polyester fabric. It can also be used for many years and sent to an industrial compost facility at the end of the product's life.

ZEROCODE - Smart Stretcher Mattress System

Project Summary

A silent crisis is developing in the medical industry; offload delay is on the rise. Offload delay begins 30 mins after a paramedic team arrives at a receiving hospital and signifies the time elapsed before paramedics hand over patient care to the hospital. One of the leading causes of offload delay is overcrowded emergency departments. At the same time, the demand for emergent patient transfer is increasing. The delay keeps paramedics in hospitals, reducing the number of available paramedics responding to a city’s emergencies. Occasionally, all paramedics within a city will become unavailable, resulting in a city's inability to respond to new emergencies; this is sometimes referred to as a CODE 0. Additionally, during busy times in the emergency department, effective communication between paramedics and receiving medical professionals can begin to break down, possibly leading to delays later. Finally, cleaning and filing medical charts can further delay the paramedic team from becoming available for the next patient. The ZEROCODE system addresses this problem on multiple fronts. The ZEROCODE system increases the efficiency in multiple components of patient transfer, from the reduction of the number of wires connected to the patient to storing and transferring patient data in real-time.
