We are in this position paper presenting the experiences we have from three medical application projects. A user centered design methodology have been applied in order to ground the design in requirements gathered from field studies of professional medical environments. Methods used have been interviews, user observations in the work context and cooperative evaluations of prototypes. With a particular focus on haptic (touch) feedback, we are exploring how novel medical applications can benefit from feedback to more senses than vision and how needs can be revealed and transformed into effective design.
