A CONNECTED BREATH ANALYZER
A MARKET LEADER
Quintron is a leader in non-invasive diagnostics. For three generations, they’ve enjoyed a reputation for dependability and excellent customer service. The BreathTracker is their aging flagship device. It defines the standard on non-invasive diagnostic of small intestinal bacteria overgrowth (SIBO) issues.
Retronymity was invited to redesign their flagship product. To design a new product that exemplifies a modern medical device; a human first experience, without compromising quality.
Early sketching helps to get a feel for what works and more importantly, what doesn't.
UNDERSTANDING THE PROBLEM
Our first step is to understand the environment in which Quintron plies its trade. We spoke at length with Quintron customers and their customers. We validated some assumptions and redefined others into other design opportunities. We poured all this data into a user persona, a true north for our entire project. Our reason why.
We conceptualized a series of solutions coupled with product architecture. Particularly, important to demonstrate the feasibility of a given concept. Worked out some kinks with early prototypes, identifying key technologies. Their impact on our cost structure, its financial viability. The right solution is often a balance.
Prototyping an interface allowed us to quickly validate UX. Learn about what doesn't work.
High resolution renders, let us appreciate what does not yet exist. Does it look the way we expect our customers to love it?
LEAN PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
Over the next 10 months, our development team expanded to include mechanical, electrical and software engineering. Scaling and leading a development team is a critical aspect of any new project, especially if it involves novel ways of combining tech.
Functional prototypes are crucial for live-testing.
