Oxygen Concentrator Re-design
A collaboration with Philips Respironics
and Georgia Tech Industrial Design.

Eric K. Chiu | echiu33@gmail.com | 706.951.2110


Oxygen concentrators are ergonomically disastrous and
rarely are designed with consideration to sustainable
material choices.
For this project, an Everflo Q was donated by Philips
Respironics to be disassembled and re-purposed into a
fully functional prototype. Disassembly led to a deeper
understanding of the system.


Final design must incorporate lightweight expanded polypropylene (EPP).
Design must comply with existing safety codes (machine ventilation, etc.).
Must be visually appealing while fitting into a specified cubic area which is designated
by Philips Respironics.


Persona: Marilyn
Growing up in a upper-middle class family in the San Francisco
bay area, Marilyn has always had a good sense of what is hot on
today’s growing technology market. Recently, she has developed
an increasingly severe case of COPD, but she is not ready or willing
to give up her tasteful style in her home by disrupting the feng shui
with a medical device.
Almost everything she owns comes from a luxury market segment.
However, she understands that the growing environmental concerns
around product development are important to sustainable living.
She seeks products that can be recycled in order to avoid feeling
guilty about being a consumer.

Ergonomically, the posture that is required of the user to
operate the Everflo Q ranks as a high risk, according to
a rapid entire body assessment (REBA) evaluation.
Let’s raise the controls and make the new design taller.


Heat transfer, weight distribution, and final form were primary considerations.
