Siemens Healthineers UX icon framework

The Siemens Healthineers UX icon framework includes a collection of over 1000 icons as well as a smart tool for internal stakeholders to find suitable icons right away and to order new ones without effort. However small icons seem to be: when looked at their impact on the products closely, their quality and coherence are essential for a great user experience.

User Experience

To minimize the effort of learning for the users, all of the icons follow one style and a common metaphor strategy. As the icons are easier to understand, they enable users to act faster and do a greater job for their patients. The use and implementation of icons is simplified through the smart online tool, fostering a faster and more efficient way of developing good products. Ultimately, this contributes to the interfaces’ quality and improves the user experience for the customers.
