Respinor DXT Graphical User Interface
Sustainable Development Goals
Alongside the development of the hardware for Respinor's DXT system, K8 has developed the graphical user interface (GUI) employed on the control unit. The GUI is responsible for communicating the data collected by the sensors mounted on the patient's body, therefore providing the main interface between the clinician and the patient's respiratory wellbeing .
Starting with understanding user needs and use sequences, a system map was made capturing the requirements for the interface. *****Feedback was captured at each stage, including testing with an intensive care clinician. The design was shared directly with Inventas for programming, allowing further testing of the full system including the sensors giving live data.
The resulting interface provides the necessary live data at a glance whilst still allowing the clinician to review trends graphs, flag key events, record patient data and adjust the sensor positioning and graph parameters if needed. A positioning feature is also implemented to aid the placement of sensors as well as allowing feedback of their status when in use.
The GUI has been developed through various iterations to align the functional output of the hardware with the desired overview displayed to the ICU clinician.
Working together with Respinor, map use scenarios, data visualisation requirements, system wireframing and aesthetic demands. The GUI has been tested through various iterations to align the functional output of the hardware with the desired overview displayed to the final user. Insight from the ICU environment and doctors has been fed directly into the design process, allowing first for the correct hierarchy of information to be achieved, then built upon through further development and testing to deliver the final result.
