UE is an intrinsic part of the development process. It is an adjunct discipline with Risk Management; both exist to keep your project and company out of trouble. It is a mature methodology with exemplary tools, processes and subject matter experts to help your company grasp and implement it to meet new Regulatory requirements, and to help ensure that you design the right device for real-world needs. UE does not have to burden your project with more cost and time if it is harmoniously integrated with project planning, feasibility and development. Topics covered will include:
Looking at the differences between clinical and home-use devices and the cross-pollination of consumer design attributes
Balancing function and aesthetics, use of materials, and interface technologies, while mitigating use-error opportunities
The interrelationship of risk management, use safety and user interface design
Weighing ruggedness, ease of use/servicing/cleaning, and high-volume (disposable) and low-volume (durable) manufacturing strategies
