‘Poka-yoke’ packaging to minimise user error
Find an alternative packaging solution to reduce error when using medical devices.
We took a book-like approach to medical device packaging based on the Japanese concept of ‘poka-yoke’. Drawing sketches and using our ergonomics experience helped us consider all possible error when handling a medical device for the first time.
The result was a step-by-step packaging solution for an insulin pen with clear graphical instructions that removed the need for costly product design.
