Following are some the products they have worked on:

BTL FLEXI: Pocket Sized ECG System (https://www.btlnet.com/news/launching-btl-cardiopoint-flexi)

The award-winning product – BTL Flexi is the world’s smallest ECG device that facilitates the access to the patient’s bed and allows safer handling of the patient. The system is paperless which saves costs and reduces the exposure to bisphenol used in thermo-printing. The challenge in this project was to make a compact product with an optimal size display and a method to dock the product.

Advino Curalasor: World’s first dual head physiotherapy device

CuraLaser, is a revolutionary portable Dual Laser & HVLA Bio-Stimulation device. It’s a first-of-its -kind medical device with 2 application heads. It works on proprietary Cellular Regeneration Technology (CRT) which combines a low-level photonic laser therapy and nano-molecular bio stimulation technology. This product has won several awards and has various mentions as an Indian startup having the potential to establish a global brand for a universal physiotherapy product.

TEARADO: The Self Heating Smart Tumbler  (https://tearado.tech/)

InventIndia engineered the first smart tumbler for Tearado that combines tea with tech to experience healthier, more productive living. The smart tumbler will heat water, infuse tea and then remove the tea leaves from the water automatically. The product was launched in CES, US 2019.

TAPECLIP: The World’s smallest Tape Dispenser (http://tapeclip.net/)

TapeClip, The World’s smallest Tape Dispenser, is ideal for home, office and heavy industrial use. This patent granted product is sleeker, greener, quicker, easier and cheaper.

IXM TITAN: Apple of Biometric Industry (https://www.invixium.com/products/titan/)

TITAN is Invixium’s flagship product meticulously designed to blend the latest technology with stunning aesthetics and an unmatched performance. TITAN incorporates Facial Recognition and Finger Vein or Fingerprint biometric modalities to be the pinnacle in physical security and user convenience. There was a need to celebrate its size and robustness so that it stands out of the crowd. The engineering demanded a very versatile packaging solution as this product caters to almost all kinds of access control devices and different sensors. The product finally had a metallic enclosure with seamless finish to give a very premium positioning.

As a value addition to meet the current Pandemic, an extended version of the product was developed – “A COVID19 Solution”. This enhancement kit includes ‘contactless’ access control, employee time tracking, & visitor screening based on temperature detection through thermal sensors as fever checks have become a norm in this era.

Duke University: ReInvent the Toilet (Funded by Gates Foundation)
(http://washaid.pratt.duke.edu/work/water-sanitation/reinvent-toilet-challenge)

Duke University had invited us to work with them on an exhibition project for a futuristic toilet. The intent was to use various technologies and filters. In this one-of-a-kind display, prototypes, mockups, graphical elements, animations, stall design, branding & overall experience design. The Gates foundation had sponsored this Reinventing the toilet initiative that was finally exhibited in Beijing.
