wheezo is designed to be quick and easy to use, portable and child-friendly. It’s a medical product that is designed to look not-so-medical - with an approachable form.
wheezo’s egg-like shape was developed by referencing the playful objects children like to hold - such as a soft, smooth pebble or egg shape. Form studies were used to test ergonomics. Wheezo feels soft and smooth in the hand, fitting easily into a bag, pocket or lunchbox.
The design team focused heavily on ergonomics for the design of the wheezo device, building multiple mock-ups and testing to understand what worked best for children and adults.
The egg shape was selected for its versatility and its playful nature. Side indents give a more natural grip, that keeps hands clear of the noise cancelling microphone built into the lower flat face. The ergonomics ensure a positive user experience.
