Okti has a subtle styling aesthetic strongly driven by function. The device's form is softened at the edges to allow for gentle contact with patients and easy interaction with clinicians. Soft textures, playful colour pallet and custom textiles used on the various components bring a sympathetic approach to the design of this unique medical device.
Special attention has been given to the interaction with children, with the goal of making the often stressful process of undergoing an EEG - fun. A custom character Okti the octopus was developed, complete with its own head bandage. Okti is on the journey with you.
Usability is at the heart of Okti's design. Every component has been designed in the context of a system - where each element seamlessly works with other elements of the product. Leveraging the patented electrode illumination feature enables clinicians to quickly place 74 electrodes into the sockets of the device in correct order.
Batteries are easily removed by releasing the spring loaded door which is also fully accessible when in the device's protective case. Interchangeable study modules utilise quick connectors that are easily swapped out by technicians with the removal of a single screw.
Okti is fully compliant with CE, Class IIb, FDA, IEC 60601 standards. Great effort was expended to research, specify, test and validate custom grades of polymer for the device, which must withstand hard impacts, chemical attack from hospital cleaning agents and meet stringent UL-94V2 fire resistance standards.
A lockable case protects against deliberate or accidental electrode removal by patients. Okti is sold to approved hospitals/clinicians and can only be operated by trained personnel.
