Speck Design was asked to refine the Cyberknife’s appearance and enhance the overall user experience.
A willingness to put aside typical expectations of medical devices helped set this design project apart. Considered choices, such as the use of gentle green lighting to cue robot movement, meant that patients stayed informed, without harsh red or white lights.
The Cyberknife design conveyed a sense of calm through the integration of colors rarely seen in hospitals or clinics. In addition, the system was designed in a way that makes servicing the system easier for the technicians.
