Domiciliary eye care company, OutsideClinic, has introduced a new lightweight kit bag for its optometrists that is designed to make their day-to-day work “more efficient and comfortable.”

The introduction of the new bag follows feedback from clinicians who felt their kit bag was “too heavy and challenging to use.”

Designed by OutsideClinic Southwest regional manager, Dan Young, and senior designer, Jon Richards, the new bag features pre-cut slots for each piece of equipment, which aims to both reduce the risk of damage during transit and makes it easier to see if something has been left behind. The layout is also designed to streamline the testing processes while reducing physical strain and deterioration rate of the kit, OutsideClinic has said.

The new bag, which weighs 6.4kg compared to the previous 10kg bag, is already being used by 80 optometrists, and OutsideClinic aims for it to be rolled out company-wide by the end of spring.

Commenting on the new bag, Young said: “By prioritising the end user, our optometrists, we ensured that the new case was functional and seamlessly integrated with the rest of our equipment. We are thrilled to introduce this new case to our team and confident that it will improve our operations and enhance the experience for our optometrists.”
