Overview & Challenge: Jumpstart stalled development efforts and complete prototypes of a portable bed exit monitor product. Oversee production design efforts.
Contributions & Results: Took over product development project that was stagnating after 2 years of non-productive efforts by another company and produced - in just 4 months - 3 fully functional prototypes. Helped raise funding for continued development by providing technical consultation to the Board of Directors and at potential investors meetings. Headed production design and delivered 50 production units in 5 months. Structured strategic partnership with MedPro Medical Equipment to enhance marketing of product. Coordinated completion of development changes and improvements to product that has since proven to reduce patient falls 70% in beta tests with Hospice and Homecare.
