Optiflow™ Junior Research and Development Journey

Optiflow Junior is a nasal cannula designed specifically for neonates, infants and children. In 2009, existing cannula designs left room for improvement. Our talented product development team came up with a new design that had the patient and caregiver at the centre.

There were a number of aspects of the traditional design that had opportunity to improve on including:

  • Tubing design
  • Retention mechanism
  • Prong design
  • Condensate control
  • Flow range
  • Speed and ease of application

The Process

Fisher & Paykel Healthcare investigated what customers were looking for in a patient interface and used the findings to establish what the requirements for a new product would be.

These customer requirements were translated into product requirements that Optiflow™ Junior must be effective, gentle and easy.

Optiflow™ Junior has been recognized worldwide for its excellence in design, winning many prestigious product design awards due to its patient and caregiver centric design.
