User feedback is always the driver for designing new products - we have focused particularly on improving the user experience.

Credibility and a more attractive option for customers

User feedback is always the driver for designing new products for Optomed. Important feedback was received when we started to design Optomed Aurora, hand-held fundus camera. We have focused particularly on improving the user experience. Attention has been paid to camera ergonomics, for example in handle design, material selection, and viewing angle. The look and design of the camera are freshly colored and the graphical elements are clearly reduced. The physical and graphical state-of-the-art user interface with simple menus and icons is also completely brand-new in Optomed Aurora.

Improvements compared to earlier products include e.g. optical enhancements, battery power boost and a spare battery, not to forget cleanability and serviceability. Larger 4” display and dual charger are new in Optomed Aurora. Of course, we also wanted to create a long-lasting and innovative design for the camera.

We designed a modern sales case for the camera, where both the user's specific needs and camera’s durability are central elements.

Unique device design gives credibility and is in every way a more attractive option for customers. It is very important that customers are proud of their camera and that they feel they get a value for money.

Optomed Aurora was granted a Design from Finland mark. Finnish design is perceived as safe, high quality and positively distinctive. These in addition to ease of use and technological solutions are Optomed’s clear competitive advantages.
