Concept

Personal dosimetry is the measurement required by law for the assessment and continuous monitoring of radiological risk assumed by all persons exposed to ionizing radiations in the performance of their job functions.

Despite its success in the market, the precedent product was a handmade solution rather, and it did not communicate brand values efficiently.

The general concepts on which we worked were to improve product quality, simplify manufacturing and optimize the entire product life cycle.

Results

The new version of the product is manufactured by injection molding, allowing to quickly meet growing market demand with a consistent quality. The product has a permanent part and a lid with a fuse concept, which guarantees that the film inside has not been exchanged or altered. It is destroyed when opened and a new one is being placed to give a new product life cycle.

Several prototypes were made during the design process and rigorous monitoring of providers was carried out to ensure quality manufacturing and product performance.
