When one member of the family is an allergy sufferer, it´s the beginning of a story that could develop until it ends by trying all sort of medicines and devices. This is a big field of research for both scientists and engineers that together collaborate to come up with new solutions. From Ventolin to air purifiers, all sort of devices are created and developed.
Technology, Design and Health
“Give me something easy, not painful, looks nice, not expensive and which will improve our health as soon as possible”. This is how I see what people hope for today. There are many disciplines, as this subheading suggests, involved in the process of creating a health improvement device and which are Technology, Design and Health.
To come with the faster processing device, technology is high priority for companies as it’s the main pillar on which they could praise the merit of their products. The company Guardian Technologies for examples have implemented various technologies in its GermGuardian air purifiers. HEPA Filters, UV-C Technology and Charcoal Filter are all technologies which are used to market their air cleaning systems.
Design is an essential component today because of it’s different benefits. Design is ergonomy. A nicely designed device will fulfill the task it’s designed for in the easiest way possible. Design is decoration. A dehumidifier for exam
ple is a device meant to lower moisture level inside homes, but if it shouldn’t compromise the interior design. Design is also used to give a feeling of sturdiness while using only plastic, so buyers should pay attention to this fact.
This is in reality the most important aspect of these devices. Because air purifiers, dehumidifiers and humidifiers are all meant to serve a health purpose, failing in this mission would nullify the value of technology and design. Many customers are aware of this aspect and are looking for review all around the internet before purchasing any home improvement unit so that they could base the quality and efficiency of these devices on the experiences of owners.
