Embracing Human Factors And Usability for Medical Devices

Practical Advice For Implementing a Usability Strategy in all Phases of the Lifecycle Process

 

Will your Innovative Product be considered ‘Usable” by healthcare providers and their patients?

If not, you have significant risks for market acceptance, regulatory review, & product life cycle.

As medical devices mature and grow more capable they also become more complex, requiring focus on usability aspects from both a user experience (UX) design, human factors engineering (HFE) and regulatory perspective.

 

We will discuss:

  • Customizing a UX strategy
  • Practical advice for getting started with Human Factors Engineering
  • How to effectively mitigate usability risks using systems engineering
  • Tips for navigating FDA guidance
