and timeless design.

summary of the CLB Nurse Call

To CLB To support its product development, Scope first developed a strategy for the design of the complete range of medical alarm systems from CLB. Important components of this strategy are one modular construction of functionalities and a recognizable Design Experience. Applied to the core product; the Unicare modular nurse call system, Scope designed one flexible and smart paging system, that hygienic can be kept clean and practical in assembly.

touch points in picture

When CLB approached Scope to develop its product range, they are technology leaders in the market. Unique is the ability of CLB to do both intramural as extramural medical alarms to deal with. CLB approached Scope for the touch points to design for nurses and patients, with the ambition to realize products, which in terms of User Experience would get the same lead. 

CLB first invested in product development and mold-bound Products. Scope therefore started with a design strategy, which led to a system for a modular functionality and a consistent and recognizable Design Experience. It was sketched out how it would be applicable to the entire range of products.

user experience

"Unicareis used daily by nurses and patients. Nurses sign in and out of the room and can provide one assistance call for example for CPR. Patients can sound an alarm to "call" a nurse or be there secondary functions, such as operating the lighting, blinds and the like. Scope designed one Interaction based on a simple one two-button operation to prevent incorrect operation in emergency situations. 

By means of the color lighting, the function and the status indicated. This allows priorities flexible displayed, for example, depending on the presence of nursing staff in the room. Thanks to the illuminated buttons, the nurse call system can also be operated at night well readable.

Cleaning suitability

Hygiene is very important in hospitals and nursing homes. Edges around buds are a place where bacteria accumulate and are difficult to clean. Scope therefore designed a ministry that is entirely closed and that no edges around the buttons. With a 2K injection molded housing of TPE on ABS, the closure was achieved on the one hand with sufficient flexibility for operation. On the other hand, this created a pleasant experience hand feeling for both the patient and the nurse.


ICT systems are installed in two steps. Initially, the cabling is pre-assembled, after which the ICT party installs the products. The design of the Unicare nurse call takes this into account, because the product base is a solid combination of one metal frame with plastic parts, which can withstand the more coarse material pre-assembly. The electronics can then go here efficiently hooked up turn into. A mounting solution that fits in well with practice.
