Human factors

User research and analysis

How we achieve this:

In this stage, user needs and requirements are identified through research and analysis of user behavior, tasks, and workflows. This stage involves understanding the target user’s cognitive and physical capabilities, as well as any environmental factors that may affect the use of the medical device.

Design and development

How we achieve this:

In this stage, the design of the medical device is developed based on the insights gained from the user research and analysis. The design should take into account user needs and requirements, including usability, safety, and ergonomics.

Prototype testing and
evaluation

How we achieve this:

In this stage, prototypes of the medical device are tested and evaluated by users to ensure that the design is effective, efficient, and user-friendly. This stage may include usability testing, task analysis, and user feedback.

Implementation and review

How we achieve this

In this stage, the medical device is implemented and monitored for any usability or safety issues that arise during real-world use. This stage may involve ongoing monitoring of the device’s performance and feedback from users to ensure that the device continues to meet user needs and requirements.

Prototype and test

Prototyping and testing are essential steps in the design process. Prototyping allows us to test design and functionality, evaluate the product performance and identify any early issues.

Prototyping can be done using various methods such wireframes, or functional prototypes using methods such as 3D printing.
