Abstract
The objectives of this master’s thesis were carried out for, and in cooperation with, a medical company. The goal was to assist in the development of a new product suited for organ transplantation. The product has several purposes including: helping to increase the proportion of organs suitable for transplantation, improving transplantation procedures, and increasing the length of time between organ procurement and transplantation.

The main purpose of this master’s thesis was to produce a product requirements
specification and, in accordance with this, create the conceptual design for the user interface.

The objectives of this master’s thesis were carried out for, and in cooperation with, a medical company. The goal was to assist in the development of a new product suited for organ transplantation. The product has several purposes including: helping to increase the proportion of organs suitable for transplantation, improving transplantation procedures, and increasing the length of time between organ procurement and transplantation.

The main purpose of this master’s thesis was to produce a product requirements
specification and, in accordance with this, create the conceptual design for the user interface.

Current donation and transplantation procedures are described in order to clarify critical events that need to be considered during the development phase. These procedures include, but are not limited to, both the surgical process and the transportation of the organs. This product is expected to contribute to improved transplantation procedures in the future.

This thesis handles various requirements needed to be considered during the
development of the product and explains why they are important. The company which
was collaborated with has expectations of making the product transportable by airplane,
which is why the product must comply with certain flight regulations. Since the product
will be categorized as a medical device there are specific regulations and directives that need to be fulfilled. The medical and user requirements must also be considered during the development stage of the product. The regulations and authority which they are issued by are also explained and commented upon. An extract of the traceability matrix containing the product requirements is presented and explained as well.

The process of creating the conceptual design for the user interface is described, and sketches from the different stages are presented to show different points in the creative process. Evaluations of these sketches have been performed in order to evolve the concepts into a final user interface proposal for the company. The need to use standardized medical symbols is explained and suitable symbols that were used in the conceptual design are shown. The pros and cons of the final design are explained and critique is given in order to provide continued guidance in the development of this product. (Less)
