Lynton Lasers is a long-established manufacturer and distributor of high technology equipment for medical and cosmetic therapies.
The company had struggled with the build quality and durability of laser handpieces used in treatments such as hair removal and acne control.
Handpieces are complex, safety-critical assemblies of high-voltage cabling and water cooling.
Intuitive control, good balance and robust assembly are vital to enable therapists to deliver effective, comfortable treatments – often to sensitive areas of a patient’s anatomy.
Lucid’s work focussed on creating an unthreatening, clinical aesthetic for an ergonomically-balanced, incredibly robust structure. Using foam models and rapid prototypes, the user and consumer experience was tested and refined prior to engineering design and optimisation.
Lucid helped Lynton source manufacturers to deliver a “right first-time” product that looks and feels right – and will last in a demanding market.
Lucid’s team take industrial design beyond colour, materials and finish into engineering better experiences for our users.
