With consumers today accustomed to having sleek, user-friendly technology at their fingertips, it’s increasingly important for medical technology to meet the same standards for usability and exceptional user experiences. As such, medical device designers today need a deep understanding of user needs and how to translate them into user-centered attributes in the finished device, but gaining those insights can be tricky.
In a free webinar on Thursday, December 14, you’ll learn the ins and outs of identifying user needs to drive effective medical device development.
Sign in and listen to this recorded webinar to get expert advice on the following:
- Understand the benefits of developing user-centered devices
- Strategies for identifying and prioritizing user needs
- Effective methods for translating user needs into tangible design inputs
Join Carolyn Rose and Craig Scherer of medtech design and development firm Insight Product Development for advice on how to uncover user needs and turn them into design inputs for your next innovative medical device.
Insight is pleased to announce that we have been won a Red Dot Award: Design Concept 2017. This year’s entry, Skintact, creates a complete system to control and heal mild to severe eczema using medicated patches and light therapy.
Craig Scherer and Carolyn Rose talk about the importance of effectively identifying, prioritizing, and translating user needs into design guidance in their latest Med Device Online article
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.
