It’s not just about architecture; what are the critical systems engineering roles and responsibilities?
Creating a simple-to-use product is vital to creating a great user experience in any industry, but in the medical industry, simplification can, quite simply, save lives.
The results of usability testing and expert reviews can be inconsistent across evaluators. How can we make these more reliable?
Should you design your perfect product or begin with your minimum viable product?
This week we explore the collected knowledge of work by three research institutes (National Academy of Sciences, Seoul National University and UC Santa Barbara) to image possibles within our medical device design and development applications.
A key to understand the emotional relationship between a product or service and a user is to find the tacit knowledge and latent needs of the user. But what the user has a personality that does not like to participate?
Part I in a series of articles that will provide insight into TSP, its applicability to the medical device industry, and how it helps achieve the high level of software quality required for devices.
The implementation of human factors engineering throughout the design process will be critical for emerging mobile health applications, not only because FDA is regulating these new mobile medical devices, but because it’s good practice and is an essential tool for decreasing patient safety risks while increasing usability and effectiveness.
If required in the product, the spring is probably the least expensive component of the assembly. However, if it does not function as intended or fails, it can become a warranty issue which can be quite expensive as far as repair, loss of sales and product reputation.
Why should we go back to using water as a solvent? Water-based chemistry has simple operations, high synthetic efficiency, safety benefits, low-cost reactions, and a high potential to generate new synthetic methodologies that can that can be patented to protect your product.
