Interaction design, user interface design
May - October, 2017
context & CHALLENGE
Metamason’s ambitions were to create custom on-demand CPAP masks to address the fundamental fit problems found in standard mass produced masks. Launched in 2016, Metamason developed a innovative scanning application that captures 3D face scan data and generates masks on-site. The application was functional but had a lack of thoughtful user experiences and critical interactions. In May 2017, I joined the team as a Product Designer, working alongside a small team consisting of a Backend Developer, Frontend Developer, Industrial Designer, QA, and the CPO. Being completely new to the CPAP industry, I took the initiative and spent the first month meeting with the Marketing Strategist, who had an extensive history with medical devices focusing on sleep apnea, in order to learn more about the market, product, and the workflow of sleep lab clinicians and Durable Medical Equipment (DME) practitioners. My goal was to design an intuitive scanning interface and user experience that would ensure that respiratory therapists and respiratory technicians of any skill level would be able to take an accurate scan of their patients’ faces efficiently and reliably.
