ULOU: The Universal Language of Understanding

The vast majority of health care facilities use linguistic based signs to help visitors navigate around their facilities.  This is a problem as linguistic based signs are exclusive and are only effective for individual who can read the language presented. Using symbols to communicate messages can be much more effective than linguistic based signs because symbols have the unique ability to transcend language.

Research question:  Is it possible to design a symbol that can cross cultural boundaries and be universally understood?  

The ULOU project is creating a set of “universal” health care symbols that can be used to help a greater number of people navigate around health care facilities independently. The end goal is to lighten the burden on health care staff and reduce patient anxiety for first time hospital visitors globally.
