X-Ray redesign / X-ray machine

X-Ray redesign

In cooperation with a manufacturer an innovative and modern x-ray unit interface emerged. It consists of only four intuitive handles which also enable a great haptical feedback to the user. The form itselfs supports the communication to the user. Angled sides and a nopped top part show the ability to rotate the head. Hidden handles behind the sides and angled parts are activated by pushing. The interface has been simplified and replaced by a digital display speeding up and making the operation more precise.

The design language and indicational functions have been reduced to a minimum while maintaining safe and precise handling.
