ZiuZ wins design prize
News | 25 October 2019
At a special dinner show on Monday, October 21, during the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, this aid for pharmacists has been awarded the recognition for Good Industrial Design.
In pharmacies it sometimes happens that filling robots make mistakes when filling personalized medicine bags. That is why there is always a need for a check by a pharmacist, who can correct the errors. This is assisted by the ZiuZ Corrector. This is a device that takes pictures of the medicine bags after their contents have been corrected by the pharmacist. These photos are added for reference to the photo database of the recording equipment where the original images are stored. In this way, the ZiuZ Corrector contributes to the safe use of medicines.
Spark design & innovation has designed the compact and stable Corrector for ZiuZ. This device enables the pharmacist to perform various actions in one smooth movement. The rising edge of the tray helps the user slide the medicine bags from the table onto the tray. In the same movement, the pouch is positioned under the camera, after which the photo is taken by pressing the plateau. This new proofreader camera takes usability to the next level. The Corrector will be available from 2020 for users of the ZiuZ products Photon and IRIS.
