Advanced manufacturing technology in the here and now.
Getting your requirements right early in the development process can help avoid problems during final manufacturing.
Treating adhesive selection as a trivial exercise can result in manufacturing issues, device malfunctions and potential patient harm.
A variety of factors should inform your device marketing strategy.
Outdated technology in infusion pumps has led to persistent infusion-related errors and costly workplace inefficiencies. A new paradigm in adaptive pump design that addresses external factors is needed to optimize patient safety and clinical workflow.
Human factor engineering must account for all groups within the Diffusion of Innovation curve. Medical devices must work for the Innovators, and more importantly account for the Majority Adopters and Laggards.
When developing longer-lasting adhesives, designers must consider skin dynamics and the overall function of the product very early in the design phase.
In the medical device world, “sustainability” is more than a buzzword—it’s an economic and social duty.
Conducting usability tests will help manufacturers reduce the risk of harmful use errors and enhance device effectiveness.
Device manufacturers must do more to integrate supplier and clinical perspectives during the product design process.
