Usability has become an "issue" in medical technology, but it is an important design stage for any product. Ergonomics, the study of the human factor, is the basis of usability. Already known and applied in safety for a long time, insights into usability in the context of software development and interaction with screens is more relevant than ever.
The web environment is changing much faster than the environment in the real economy. Technologies and optimization strategies become obsolete faster than they can be learned. We therefore recommend you to team up with specialists in this field. We also work with various external programmers and web developers, and focus on the overall impact in terms of brand identity integrity.
In today's understanding of design - and therefore the basis of our work - ergonomics and usability are integrated into the design process. Today, design can no longer ignore ergonomics. We combine both ways of thinking to come to a conclusion that supports the users, is agreeable to them and lets them reach their goal faster.
Initially, the application is studied and the processes analyzed. The questions asked are: What is important? What can be simplified or left out? Comparisons are made with competing products and workflow diagrams created.
After finalizing design, we refine the individual screens and test the effectiveness of visual and textual elements. The finished screens are passed to an external programmer with the required formats.
After the definition of the requirements, the interaction concepts are designed. The operating procedures are developed and visualized using simple means, such as paper prototypes. Individual screens are optimized and the application is built as a simulation.
By using simulation, continuous testing and improvement is possible. Parallel to the development-related tests, we have usability tested, validated and verified externally (e.g. for medical devices).
