Ryosuke Ogura, Product Designer

These are prototypes of a mobile X-ray diagnostic imaging system for hospitals. Departing from the conventional concept of electrical mobile systems, we decided to start from scratch with this early-stage design from the perspective of medical care sites. All unnecessary elements were eliminated to focus on increasing value through such features as excellent mobility and manual operation. A simple mock-up was created to quickly and practically evaluate the design by combining existing products and machined parts. Identifying the needs and conducting product evaluations at medical care sites across the world significantly contributed to subsequent commercialization.
