01

First Drafts

Asset 07

At the beginning of the joint project, we developed use cases that describe the daily tasks of the nursing staff. These use cases served as the basis for developing wireframes.

02

Wireframes

The wireframes were discussed and put into digital form so that a first click through was possible.

03

Personas

At the same time, the tasks and challenges of the nursing staff were summarized in form of personas so that they will not be forgotten in the further development work.

THE RESULT

The new bed controller works via the employee’s smartphone and automatically detects which bed is nearby to be coupled. With an intuitive and attractive design, it is possible to move the bed into the required position quickly and easily or to lock individual motors.
