This project was one of the biggest challenges of my career, as I’d never before worked on launching a medical device from start-to-finish, and was solely responsible for the entire user experience. The device was built by my client and a partner from the ground up, so it gave me deep insight into the process of creating and launching a brand new device.
Research & UX Strategy
This was an integration into an existing application, so much of the demographic research was already completed. I worked closely with the technical teams building the device to determine what data was being collected, what the physical and technical limitations were of the device, and how much control we had over the firmware of the device.
I did a lot of research into existing tacking applications, how they display their data and what metrics are compared to create insights.
I did all UI design for implementation into the client’s existing mobile and web applications. I provided Adobe XD and/or Sketch files for all screens and states, including detailed UX specification for colours, fonts, etc.
Specification & Development
I was the main individual writing and maintaining app documentation including specifications for new features as well as change logs. I run a tight documentation ship in Confluence and Jira. This includes wireframes, flow diagrams, database schema drafts and a large number of use cases.
Working closely with all stakeholders, I designed the device logo, majority of the packaging for the device, and chose the device colours in keeping with our app branding guidelines
