Radiant Life Technologies has been at the forefront of low-level laser therapy since their formation, starting with the birth of coMra therapy and the pioneering Delta Series low-level medical laser, designed back in 2009.

To evolve the product line, my task was to design and develop a more affordable device aimed toward the self-sufficient home user. My scope would cover conception right through to final packaging, including design direction for their Indiegogo campaign.

The brief was straightforward; "...create a portable device to apply a treatment wherever and whenever needed, ready to use straight out of the box without complicated procedures."

The body shape and silicone coating provide a surface that clings to skin, helping hands-free operation (e.g. wedged between the insides of a bent elbow or knee, or when resting between cheek/jaw and collar bone).

I wanted a shape that would help reduce hand fatigue during longer treatments. 3D prints were invaluable for working out the geometry.

Buttons made from softer silicone give a noticeable change in feel, helping non-visual operation thus quicker and easier application on repetitive treatment points. The yellow stop/start button has a tiny raised “nipple” for quick identification.

I worked with our engineers in China, incorporating PCB CADs into my design drawings to ensure that the finalised device materialised as close as possible to the original conception.

I designed the retail box to hold a Palm (available in Pearl White or Warm Grey), a quick start guide and a USB cable protected in a foam inlay. Printed on the back cover are Instructions for downloading the accompanying coMra user guide as either a PDF or an app for iOS or Android.

The retail box had to be small enough to place inside a letter-sized padded envelope, as most sales would be via RLT’s web shop.

The coMra Palm has been a big success for the company, and continues to receive 5-star ratings on Google Reviews;

“…I take my coMra Palm everywhere with me, just in case. I used it on one trip when I had terrible stomach pain which happens often when I travel abroad, treating it with the Palm was the only way for me to fall asleep. I love coMra therapy and all of the devices, so easy to use and such amazing results each time!…”
