Reduction to the essentialsaddresses the sensory overload on an intensive care unit. The plain design style draws the focus on essential information. Depending on the work steps, necessary information is hidden or displayed, areas that are not in focus are subdued. For example when the electrode belt’s functionality is tested, only those electrodes with a bad or missing signal are displayed. Together with Swisstom we decided that highlighting the functional electrodes in green would be redundant.
Integrabilityenables Swisstom to display the visualizations on ventilators, too. Therefore, we attached great importance to the modular setup of the UI during the design process.
