User Interface (UI) Design

We design wireframes, create prototypes and design proposals for software and hardware UIs. We offer a variety of services to aid your product design, including:

  • Creating wireframes and prototypes according to best practices of interaction design and usability. 
  • Identifying suitable methods to support the design process and iterative prototyping, such as:
    • Heuristic evaluation
    • Cognitive walkthrough
    • Usability testing
    • Contextual Inquiry (workplace observation and interviews)
    • Personas based on concrete user needs
    • Analysis of use cases
    • Evaluation of post-market surveillance data and customer feedback from comparable products
    • Survey development
    • Customized interviews, focus groups, and workshops
    • A/B testing of design prototypes
  • Developing style guides that take into account the overall user experience, the concrete requirements of current 9241-series standards, and your corporate brand standards.
  • Determining ergonomic UI requirements, which tend to be the best starting point for increasing and ensuring efficiency in UIs.

Design Discovery

Do you have a product idea, but don't know how to take the first steps in terms of design? As a medical device manufacturer, we offer you design support tailored to your needs, and compliant with all applicable requirements and regulations.

We support you in the conceptual phase to:

  • Create an efficient user interface development process.
  • Iteratively develop and optimize user interface prototypes.
  • Check drafts and prototypes heuristically for possible design flaws or errors in the early stages of development (especially with regard to security-relevant user interface characteristics and user errors).
  • Develop recommendations to improve the usability of your design.

Our product design know-how comes from a multitude of usability tests of different products, experience in recognizing important ergonomic design factors, familiarity and clinical contexts of use, and understanding the real needs of doctors and healthcare professionals.
