innoVIVA develops and distributes smart breath analyzers for athletes. innoVIVA’s core offering is the LactoLevel - a mobile spirometer for ambitious individual athletes, as well as sport clubs and groups, which is operated via an easy-to-use app.
Due to the high technical and operational complexity, InnoVIVA teamed up with BatchOne to accelerate product development and future production. The goal was to support InnoVIVA with an express product design to convince future customers and partners at the MEDICA and ISPO fairs, and to kickstart the pre-marketing of the product.
The brand values, product vision, product requirements and use cases for the hardware and the user interface were defined together with innoVIVA. After initial market and competitor research, the first design ideas and preliminary product positioning were developed. Based on future product pricing – as well as technical, component, and Bill of Materials requirements – two design concepts were developed in 3D and several renderings were generated. These were also rapidly 3D printed to verify ergonomics and handling. Once the final design was chosen and feedback was implemented and updated in 3D, photorealistic renderings were generated and the high quality lookalike prototypes produced.
