UI Design and Safety in Medical Devices

How to Develop for Both in Graphical User Interfaces Designed for Medical Embedded Devices


The graphical user interface (GUI) is an important element for any application but it is especially vital when the device, and its proper or improper use, impacts human life.


When every second counts, having an intuitive user experience that reduces human error and streamlines device use is as important as ensuring safety and security. How can developers best manage these requirements while still meeting the accelerating demands for new features?

Join us for this one-hour webinar to learn best practices for user-friendly graphical user interface (GUI) design and how to build a safe and secure device, from the operating system on up. Our panelists will share real-world use cases of medical embedded devices, using the NXP i.MX8 as a reference; however, the learnings can be applied to many applications.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Best practices for designing an intuitive GUI for safety-critical environments
  • How to speed development by building a software platform that is used in all products
  • Key take-aways from IEC 62304 and strategies to streamline your certification process
