Medical UI Design That Simplifies Complex Data

January 27, 2016

Simplicity in Medical UI Design may be an interface’s most important usability design principle. It optimizes the user experience and simplifies software development. One example is Thermo Fisher Scientific’s innovative NanoDrop One UV-Vis Spectrophotometer, which solves complex analytical challenges and produces results and analysis that can be understood quickly and easily.

Areteworks uses a funnel approach to create successful interface systems, simplifying complex information and design concepts down to a user-friendly and enjoyable medical device UI product. This approach starts with an immersion into our client’s current product coupled with intensive User and Behavioral Research. Feedback gathered from the users provides invaluable information and guidance for the UI Concept Design segment of the medical device UI design process, allowing our Information Architects to better understand the user’s needs and desires especially focusing on solutions to their pain points.

Once we have generated design concepts, we test the usability of those concepts through Formative Usability Testing. A prototype is developed from our wireframe and targeted testing is conducted, which allows for even deeper feedback into the current design direction. This part of the process distills the UI concepts even further, focusing on the areas that proved successful to users and eliminating those aspects of the user interface that were not needed.

The last part of our funnel process focuses on the iconic and graphics of the interface, such as color scheme, button placement and themes. Based on the usability results, observations by the design team and the client’s feedback, we apply final revisions to the navigation and graphical interface. The result is an intuitive, enjoyable and a highly graphical user interface.
