Kedalion Therapeutics

Streamlining care and telehealth through mobile

The challenge

Kedalion Therapeutics is a medtech startup whose mechanical eyedroppers with AcuStream™ technology allow easy and accurate administration of topical drugs to the eye.

To further enhance dosage compliance and user satisfaction, Kedalion wanted to add telehealth features to its device, which would allow patients and caretakers to automatically track dosage times, dosage amounts, and receive real-time treatment reminders. Kedalion asked CitrusBits to create a companion mobile app that would provide this IoT/telehealth functionality.

The process

Immediately upon project kickoff, our engineers moved quickly to obtain a hardware sample of the eyedropper. Our development team worked directly with the Kedalion hardware engineers to develop the requisite mastery of the device’s API and how to communicate with it via Bluetooth.

Working in parallel with our engineering team, our UX/UI designers and product team hosted regular collaborative design calls with the client, allowing our designers to quickly dial-in the exact screens needed for version 1.0. With scope clarity, we were then able to provide wireframe designs in just one week and move on to complete high-fidelity visual designs shortly thereafter. The frictionless and intuitive user experience our team designed quickly gained the client’s approval, allowing us to move right into development.

Quality assurance for a medical device of this type is paramount, so our development team built custom testing capabilities to allow internal testers and client testers to run the app through many different usage scenarios. This helped ensure the app would perform reliably in the field.

The result

Running against the clock, CitrusBits was able to design, develop and deploy the telehealth app for Kedalion within three months of project kickoff. The Kedalion team loved the streamlined and intuitive experience we built and is now proudly working to bring the transformative product to market.
