Sep. 2021: MCM(Mobile Clinic Module) Control System UI/UX wins Bronze Prize at IDEA 2021
The UI/UX of MCM(Mobile Clinic Module) Control System led by professor Nam Tek-Jin, chair of the school’s Industrial Design Department, has won a bronze prize at IDEA which is one of the world’s top three design awards. The Mobile Clinic Module is a mobile negative pressure isolation ward. It was designed to help hospitals with insufficient isolation beds in an emergency by being able to easily set up the ward wherever it is needed. It was driven by a co-creative process with medical staff and patients who will use the ward. The Mobile Clinic Module’s UI and system play a key role in allowing the ward to operate systematically and efficiently. In a complex and busy isolation ward, a well-designed UI/UX system helps medical staff work more productively. It also helps isolated patients to be treated in a more comfortable and emotional way.
