Real-World Success Case – Pre-Production Prototyping with GlobeChek
GlobeChek’s brilliant self-serve kiosks provide access to eye screening examinations in high-traffic locations like malls and airports so that underserved populations can get the screenings they need to catch preventable and treatable issues early on.
GlobeChek came to PEP to turn their brilliant vision (no pun intended) into a pre-production prototype, and we went to work bringing their impressive globe-shaped kiosk to life.
That was no small feat, as the kiosks are complex machines – a symbiosis of precision medical equipment, mechanical engineering, and American machining. Each fully computer-controlled kiosk contains all the precision ophthalmological equipment necessary to complete a full suite of eye examination tests.
We were able to provide GlobeChek with a fully functional pre-production prototype that they then successfully deployed at the American Academy of Ophthalmology Annual Conference as a demonstrator and sales tool.
Our pre-production prototype was so true to final production that GlobeChek also used it for a successful pilot study they later presented at the International Research Summit.
