AI-based wearable for rapid animal diagnosis prototype and PoC done in 3 weeks.
Aniv8, a US-based biotech startup, envisioned a smart collar for dogs to automatically detect and diagnose osteoarthritis. Despite initial technical hurdles and a low Technology Readiness Level, they partnered with our team to create a viable end-to-end solution.
We developed a deep-learning algorithm and fine-tuned the wearable sensor software to provide accurate data for machine learning in within 180 work-hours.
The result was a proof of concept and a demonstration of technical feasibility. We delivered a fully functional prototype that successfully diagnoses osteoarthritis in dogs with over 80% accuracy, all within a tight budget and timeframe.
Learn how Rapid Prototyping with punktum looks like
Rapid prototyping means 2-4 weeks from the start to a prototype that's ready to show to your customers and stakeholders.
Week 1.1 - Discovery and Planning
Initial Consultation: We kick off with a deep-dive meeting to understand your startup's goals, target audience, and the problem you're solving for them.
Scope Definition: Based on the initial consultation, we define the scope of the prototype, including drafting key functionalities and user flows.
Can it be built? Our tech experts also join the meetings to help you validate the technical feasibility of the features you aim to prototype.
Week 1.2 - Workflows and Wireframes
Product Ideation Workshop: An intensive design workshop helps us to ideate, quickly validate with you, and design how the solution might work, with user story maps, feature ideas, and simple diagrams of main user interaction flows.
Wireframing: Based on those, we create low-fidelity wireframes (black and white drafts of each screen) to map out the user journey and key interactions.
Week 2-3 - Interactive Prototype
Interactive Prototyping: We use design tools like Figma to create an interactive clickable prototype that mimics real-world user interactions, and incorporates your startup's branding elements.
Stakeholder Review: A mid-point review with stakeholders to ensure the prototype is aligned with business objectives.
User Testing: Optionally, we can already conduct remote user tests to gather initial feedback and make necessary adjustments.
Outcome:Completed ready-to-use Prototype
Week 4 - Refinement and Delivery
Iteration: Based on user feedback and stakeholder input, we iterate on the design and functionality.
Final Review: A final walkthrough with stakeholders to approve the prototype.
Delivery: We hand over the interactive prototype, along with all design assets and documentation.
By the end of this 2-4 week process, you'll have a validated, user- and investor-ready prototype that resonates with your target audience and can help you show traction to secure early-stage funding.
