This week’s entry picks up on the concept introduced in our previous post—see Actually, it is brain surgery below—of using color to identify moving parts and communicate motion. Infographics developed a new quick reference guide for GE Healthcare that contains a series of sequence illustrations demonstrating set-up and basic functional processes. The reference step shown here was also included to quickly communicate different areas of articulation for the cranial clamp. These adjustments allow users to precisely position the patient for delicate surgical procedures. By using color and arrows, users get a quick visual reference to aide in making fine adjustments—which are critical in this application.
Quick reference guides have become a specialty of ours—communicating key information in a concise and visually-based form can make the difference between a positive experience and frustration.
