Client: GE

Product: Optima MR450w

Involvement:

  • Industrial Design Integration
    • Working closely with GE’s engineers and designers we incorporated the updated product design and enhanced usability for the covers and touch points, particularly on the bed portion of the MRI.
  • Mechanical Engineering
    • Credo provided engineering and support for the development of the egress and dock covers as well as the design of the docking table covers for the Optima 450w MRI machine. This design was completed as GE was transitioning from I-DEAS to Pro/E, so Credo also quickly gained proficiency in I-DEAS in order to complete the design updates and generate 2D drawings efficiently.

What is it? The Optima MR450w is an MRI machine that utilizes wide bore MR to give patients of all sizes an overall improved experience. The Optima’s innovative design improves work efficiency for the technician and delivers unprecedented image quality to help insure diagnostic confidence.
