As if it wasn't hard enough, heart surgery takes place in the dark. What started as a human factors consultation about colors in the dimly lit lab, turned into a years long partnership with 15+ different surgical departments of Edwards Lifesciences, the leader in heart valve replacement and repair. Herbst has executed the industrial design of both open heart and minimally invasive surgical tools. Offering a holistic design approach that captures every stage of a medical product's development, Herbst follows through from early concepting to mechanical engineering for manufacture. Our naming capabilities, packaging design, animations, and rendered images for marketing or training purposes bring the device to life.
