Creative design for medical products
Industrial design and user interfaces
We are experts in the design of new medical and healthcare products. Our human-centred process puts the patient first, whilst also balancing the needs of all stakeholders to ensure the final product drives business success. Our design team work across physical and digital disciplines to deliver holistically designed products that are easy to use.
Patient-centric packaging for medical devices
A medical product extends far beyond the device itself. Packaging must be structural, but it must also be helpful. We have a track record in using medical packaging design to not only improve the user experience, but also reduce user error during set-up.
Medical app design and instructions for use
For connected and wearable medical products and medical apps, our multi-disciplinary team design the digital interfaces alongside the physical product.
We also support our clients with Instructions for Use (IFU), Patient Instruction Leaflet (PIL) and Quick Start Guide (QSG) design to ensure complete consistency of patient experience across every touchpoint.
Prototypes, CGI renders and user study materials
Whether you are conducting external studies or presenting your project internally, we support our clients with physical models, high quality CGI renders, and interactive digital prototypes. These assets make the product real at an early stage of the process, creating stakeholder buy-in and reducing project risk by enabling better quality feedback.

Why work with Tone?
100% focus on design
We focus on what we do best - design. This allows us to build our company entirely around giving our clients the best creative input possible, whether that be through industrial design, usability, ergonomics, apps, packaging or interfaces.
Highly collaborative approach
The best results come when communication is frictionless. That's why we put a particular emphasis on working as an extension of your in-house team. Whether it's WhatsApp, Slack, Teams or plain old email, we'll be communicating constantly to stay aligned with your project goals.
Seamless integration of physical and digital
Any difference in experience between physical and digital interfaces will cause confusion and harm usability. That's why we work seamlessly across both disciplines, allowing us to bridge the gap and ensure every touchpoint is aligned with our creative and user-centered vision.
Extensive in-house prototyping facilities
Our comprehensive in-house making & prototyping facilities are invaluable to rapidly develop ideas, test concepts and build aesthetic models. We thoroughly validate design ideas and minimise project risks at every stage.
No unnecessary overheads
If you're developing a medical product, you probably already have the relevant ISO standards and quality systems in place. We will work within your existing system wherever possible - which helps reduce your costs and boosts our productivity.
You deal with the directors
As a small team, we are lucky enough to be able to ensure that every project will be personally led by a company director. This guarantees that our company focus remains squarely on helping our clients drive business success through design, and gives you confidence that communication will be seamless.
We put lab-level diagnostics in the pockets of patients
