Two Engagement Models 

 
DESIGN-BASED ENGAGEMENT

This model is suitable for clients who themselves are technology providers – such as medical technology start-ups, medical device manufacturers, solo innovators, and public health organizations. In this engagement model, Lattice designs and builds the medical technology for a design fee.
 
At the end of the project, the final designs are transferred to, and become the property of, the client. Subsequently, clients has the option to either engage Lattice to build and assemble the final product, or engage its own network of suppliers and system integrators. Lattice offers design-for-manufacturability services to enable manufacturers to effectively and efficiently start their operations.
 
Some of our projects are:

  1. Designed & developed a logistics and data management platform for a Genomics firm based in Boston. The system, which includes web, Android and iOS applications, runs on a HIPAA-compliant architecture. It collates information from hospitals, study participants and genomics laboratories, and uses a gamified approach to engage study participants.

  2. Designed & fabricated a wearable device that detects balance disorders by tracking eye movement, for a medical device startup based on Bangalore. Delivered the projects at 40% below target bill-of-materials, while exceeding technical performance specifications.

  3. Designed & developed of an Android app that provides infant growth and development metrics to new parents, for a medical technology startup based on California.

  4. Designed & developed a web application, the CAMTech Innovation Platform, which connects medical technology innovators with experts, investors and resource providers in the MedTech ecosystem.​

  5. Executed a supply chain optimization project for a diabetic neuropathy startup – to enable them to procure key diagnostic technologies at 50% lower costs than before.

 
PRODUCT-BASED ENGAGEMENT

This model is suitable for end-users – such as hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare service providers. In this model, Lattice designs a solution based on the client’s needs, and offers it to the client in the form of a product – inclusive of user training and post-sales service. In this model, the designs are owned by Lattice. Some of the product ideas have also emerged from the founding teams’ operational experience. Current product portfolio:
 

  1. Networked ICU patient monitor: 5-para monitor for use in ICUs. Data is transferred over Bluetooth for display an Android tablet, and is transmitted and stored on the cloud through a WiFi network. This system offers the functionality of current state-of-the art patient monitors, at half the price.

  2. Bluetooth-enabled spirometer: Shwaas is a portable spirometer that connects with a mobile app for ease of data visualization, storage and sharing. Captures both point-values and graphs.

  3. SMS-enabled outpatient monitor: 5-para monitor to measure point-values in an outpatient setting. The data is transmitted via a built-in GSM module, as an SMS. This is a solution relevant for locations without any internet connectivity, such as Government run PHCs. 25 such units are in use in Andhra Pradesh; a total of 39 units have been deployed nationwide. 

  4. Digital microscope: A microscope with a motorized stage that scans slides, captures individual fields of view, and automatically stitches them into a composite image. This solution digitizes pathology slide, enabling pathologists to access images on the web and annotate/ analyze them online.

  5. Community-oriented Cardiac Care: Designed and built a CVD risk assessment kiosk to support the Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences’ community outreach program in adult cardiology.
