solving challenging situations
ConceptoShield™ is a flexible, intuitive and user-friendly printed accessory that helps people to feel comfortable by shielding away needles, blood, wounds and surgical procedures in a medical setting.
The graphics on the side facing the patient attract the attention from the patient, thus diverting attention away from the activities behind the shield. At the same time it allows direct communication and eye contact between the professional helper and the patient.

The original idea was to have a visual block/screen (fan-shaped) that makes it possible to work undisturbed – without the patient keeping a constant surveillance of the work operations. The user now can choose a ConceptoShield™ from a pad with very diverse and intriguing graphics. When folded to attach, a soft flexible area is created for a comfortable contact with the body. The shield is closed with a strong adhesive and the position can easily be adjusted to block the view. After use it is easy to tear of and dispose the one time use product in a hygienic way.
