We are Praxa Sense, a young medtech start-up working on the development of an innovative, data-driven device that enables long-term monitoring of multiple health parameters (e.g. blood rate, skin temperature, blood saturation, movement). We enable data collection over the long term, helping the medical professional to diagnose earlier and better monitor treatment.
Our goal is to improve healthcare by making products that perfectly combine technical possibilities with a flawless user experience. Since we are in the development-phase of our products and services, there are a lot of challenges on the design aspects.
Our product, Afi, is still in its development phase. This means that there are challenges on the product-design side which need prototyping to find good solutions. This means for example CAD-modelling of an improved housing to find a way to make it as small as possible but still waterproof. The product also needs to be validated on its user interaction. It contains LED-lights, but do the patients understand what these lights indicate? These are challenges you will pick up. We expect the internship to be partly about prototyping (CAD modelling, 3D printing, lasercutting) and partly optimizing the product on its user experience. An opportunity to broaden your design skills in multiple skills!
