Turning user needs into design guidance is a key component of developing a successful medical device. The primary goal of this process is to develop a device that not only meets the FDA’s criteria for safety and effectiveness, but also one that provides the best possible user experience for all stakeholders.
The successful application of user-centered design principles relies on iterative and frequent feedback from stakeholders throughout the entire development process. This research also provides the design team information with which to identify, document, and better manage risk throughout the design cycle.

High-impact product design starts with a deep understanding of the needs of end-users and customers. This encore workshop will help you understand end-users’ needs and the extent to which your offering effectively addresses them. Carolyn Rose and Sean Corrigan Insight Product Development will help translate such needs into actionable product requirements. They will share tools and techniques startups can leverage to better organize and translate stakeholder feedback into early product requirements that they can then use to design their products. Participants will be exposed to real-world examples of this dynamic process and have the opportunity to generate product requirements from their own collected data, with the help of the Insight PD team.
