For nurses and clinicians to provide effective patient care, they must be able to access clear and comprehensive patient data at all times. Unfortunately, patient rooms are often crowded with disparate and antiquated systems that were not designed with the caregiver in mind.
Global medical device company Mindray partnered with our Continuum team to enable better care delivery through a revolutionary patient monitor, one that would provide the most critical information to healthcare professionals with clarity and ease, even in the most chaotic clinical environments.

Patient monitors used to featured horizontal displays, and most were fixed in position. Our team collaborated with Mindray to orient the monitor vertically, a breakthrough design that allowed for more vital information to be displayed on the screen, in a way that was clear and easy to read. This configuration also ensured that the monitor took up less room in the crowded critical care space.
Continuum collaborated with Mindray to create the V Series patient monitoring system. Designed to provide critical information and easy access to healthcare professionals in the most chaotic environments, this series of monitors, both the V12 and V21, are breakthrough products, offering a user experience unrivaled by other products on the market.
The Mindray V Series patient monitoring system was released to critical acclaim, winning a Gold Medical Device Excellence Award (MDEA), a Gold International Design Excellence Award (IDEA) for Medical Products, and a Good Design Award in 2011.
In the same year, I.D. Magazine named the V Series the “Best of Category” for improving patient care. One of the magazine’s judges noted that the designers of the V Series “really studied what happens in the patient room and in terms of transporting it and portability.” Another judge noted, “there is nothing superfluous on the design itself,” adding: “I think the cartridge aspect seems pretty revolutionary for the category.”
