IRay AMD Radiotherapy Interface
Patient setup on the IRay® system requires a trained technician to perform many steps ensuring precise alignment for treatment. Bridge worked with Oraya to design a user interface that balances procedural guidance with key treatment feedback, maximizing comprehension and ease of use. By defining key steps and grouping information intuitively, the UI provides a quick and low-stress experience for both technician and patient.

Defining user roles

Early in the process, Bridge worked with Oraya to explore various ways of completing the treatment setup. Concepts for both one and two operator solutions were generated and tested with prospective users. Each screen location and mode of interaction came with its fair share of tradeoffs, and while a touch screen near the patient head restraint seemed like an ideal location, the large overhead display provided considerably more visual real estate and emerged as the best viable option.

Optimizing the workflow

While Oraya worked to determine the workflow for optimal treatment success, Bridge collaborated on how to best group those interactions.

With the physical interface and general workflow locked down, Bridge developed a series of rough wireframes exploring a wide range of interaction possibilities.  Through a series of design iterations, Bridge and Oraya narrowed towards a single solution.
