Product Design Requirements

Stanley Healthcare came to Design 1st for help with a new product concept. The requirement was to design a bracelet for tamperproof security, quick removal, and easy reattachment. Stanley required full product development support from concept design through to manufacturing.

Engineering Challenges

Implementing Design 1st’s proven process, the team overcame several obstacles to bring the final RFID bracelet design to volume manufacturing.

Transforming an innovative RFID secure bracelet concept into a manufacture-ready device

“Two end users had to be accommodated – the individuals who wear the tags and the healthcare providers who use our systems. Design 1st did a superb job of balancing the end user requirements of both our products. We needed both devices to be durable and secure as well as easy-to-use, while still being attractive and comfortable to the individual patients.”
