Medical equipment adopts the design tendencies of consumer products

Implications - Aesthetically, most pieces of medical equipment embody functional designs that leave them garishly sterile and utilitarian. In order to destigmatize the potentially negative connotations surrounding illness, medical equipment has subsequently adopted the design gestures of everyday consumer products (especially those of tech devices). Brands that recognize and respond to the sensitivities of consumers not only improve those consumers' comfort in day-to-day life, but also create a deeper emotional bond with the products or services.
