Project: Mpower: The New Patient Lifeline

Team: Allyn Rippin, Caroline Castellino and Sushama Bhat

Problem: ED treatment rooms can be an isolating, stressful, and dehumanizing experience for patients. A lack of information and loss of control can lead to anxiety, boredom and a sense of helplessness. The current bedside remote control offers patients limited function, flexibility and connectivity.

Solution: This innovative, universal “lifeline” is designed to connect, engage and empower the “stranded” patient through information and positive engagement. With its colorful, user-friendly touchscreen and wafer-thin design, patients can access information about their progress, learn more about their caregivers and customize their rooms with relaxing video "views" of nature.
