Bringing to Market: NIOX VERO® Plus


Presentation HealthTech Stage D80

Circassia and Precipice Design will share the process behind the reinterpretation of the Gold Standard FeNO testing device features through an adapted UI, larger screen, reconsidered ergonomics and contemporary industrial design offering additional options to asthma patients and clinicians.

The NIOX VERO® Plus is a ‘gold standard’ point-of-care medical device which detects nitric oxide levels, a marker of airway inflammation, in patients’ breath, to help diagnose and manage asthma.

Circassia challenged Precipice Design to further develop the established and class leading NIOX VERO® with the aim of offering additional choices to patients and clinicians who are seeking enhancements to the current device which will build on already superior patient usability and clinician efficiency.

Precipice Design worked closely with Circassia’s in-house R&D team transforming the existing device to become the NIOX VERO® Plus. The updated product has a new carry handle feature and reworked access to the breathing handle. In addition, the screen is larger, and the UI adapted, offering an enhanced user-friendly experience.

During research conducted by Precipice Design across Europe, the US and China the team iteratively stress-tested all physical and digital aspects of the new NIOX VERO® Plus design, building on the original NIOX VERO and reimagining the UI. Its virtually wordless UI and new dashboard-led visual aesthetic has been developed to be used across Circassia’s key global markets.
