eg technology and Michelson Diagnostics collaborate on OCT system

eg technology collaborated with Michelson Diagnostics on the design of their recently-launched next generation Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) system, VivoSight Dx.


VivoSight Dx is aimed at dermatologists seeking an imaging system that will enhance their ability to make rapid and accurate diagnostic decisions for their patients.

Michelson Diagnostics approached eg technology to undertake the aesthetic and detailed design of the product trolley and enclosure, and the assembly methodology of the functional elements of the OCT system. eg technology and Michelson Diagnostics invested time working with dermatologists who were already using the first generation OCT system in order to gain insight into how the machine was used and how the system could be developed to enhance the experience of both the user and the patient.

From the outset it was clear that whilst functionality was very important, the user experience could be improved. eg technology’s design team used this research to create an aesthetic concept for the enclosure  to ensure that the mobility, storage and use of the new system reflected all of the requirements identified. The new system, VivoSight Dx, was launched at the German Society of Dermatology’s 48th Congress in April 2015. 

Danny Godfrey, co-Founder and Director at eg technology said “the system is now more compact, more portable and easier to store, which will enable it to be used effectively across several consulting rooms in a single practice. It is also easier to build, service and configure for multiple markets. eg technology’s design team worked with existing users of the system and with Michelson in order to produce a sleek and functional design that improves the experience both of the user and the patient.”
