Medical
Device Design:

Why Aesthetics Are
More Than Cosmetic
ou can put lipstick
on a pig, but it is
still a pig. If you are
not familiar with this
phrase, it means creating superficial changes to a product
design in a futile effort to disguise its fundamental failings. This article addresses
the importance and challenges in the
relationship between medical device
development and the aesthetic design
process. Moreover, how the appropriate
aesthetic can be much more than cosmetic: it can improve ease-of-use, use-safety,
and delight.
These are critical to the success of a
medical device or system. In order to
achieve a purposeful aesthetic that impacts
critical aspects of the device, it requires a
rigorous methodology appropriate
for medical device development. A
cross-functional approach utilizing perceived attributes, affordances, and product semantics
can not only inform better
requirements but ultimately
result in more meaningful
and appropriate product
aesthetics.

Y

Through methodologies that utilize developing
the appropriate aesthetic, designers can
demystify complex technology.
