Created by Benjamin Holch, a designer at Milani D&C in Zurich, the machine, called CT.loop is an open, unconcealed scanner that aims to provide a less daunting experience for patients. ‘The forms and colours are designed to reassure patients and give them a sense of security. They lie on a supportive vacuum mattress while an explanation of the scan process is projected on the ceiling,’ says Holch.
