BEGER DESIGN wins IF Design Award 2023
We are pleased to announce that our X-Workstation, which serves as a central workstation for the integration and control of all medical devices in the operating theatre, has been awarded an iF DESIGN AWARD in the User Interface Concepts category by the jury.
X - Workstation
Focus on patient
The X-Workstation generates a safe and patient-oriented human-machine interaction in the OR for the benefit of patient safety. Thanks to the simple control of the entire operating room, the workflow in the OR is improved.
Various medical devices are used in modern operating theaters: X-ray, navigation, OR table, OR lights, HF device, OR microscopes, MIC device, etc. The number and complexity of computer-controlled devices in the medical technology field is increasing. The ongoing challenge of medical technology is the lag of communication between the different devices.This fact causes suboptimal processes and workflows.
The surgeon can compile the functions that are important for him individually and across all devices and save this compilation as a function group view.
Devices in the OR

Functional group interface in the X-Workstation
The user interface has a modular structure. The central navigation in the main menu allows the differentiation between devices for anaesthesia, surgery, room control and all clinic and patient data. All devices can be viewed and operated as individual devices or as individual function groups.
The innovation lies in a uniform, user-friendly and process-supporting operability using learned operating patterns of smartphones and tablets.
- Uniform screen design for all devices
- Clear structure
- Modular interface
- Modern flat design
- Scalable structure (responsive) for large and small displays
- Unique Icons
- Easy to learn
The surgeon and his team must be able to use a wide variety of devices in combination and operate them safely and quickly – without a long learning curve. The user interface enables simple and intuitive operation and adapts to all display sizes. In addition to the device view, all patient-relevant data can be called up at any time in the operating field or transferred to the wall monitors.
It is possible to switch quickly between single device views and individual funcitional group views.
The X-Workstation offers direct access to all relevant devices and functionalities as well as integration and workflow support.
- direct access via central control
- improvement of cooperation through OP workflow optimization
- safe operability
- effective and efficient control in the OR
- sterile operation by the surgeon
The X-Workstation can be operated on a wall monitor, on a sterile touch display or on a tablet with a sterile coating. This creates central workstations that enable the surgeon and his team to control all devices. This simplify and accelerate the workflow. Bundled information on the patient‘s state of health is always available in real time.
