Human Factors Design

Human Factors Design enables all stakeholders to virtually experience the medical device in its context of use to reduce the risk of human error and expensive late-stage design modifications.

Evaluate and validate the patient, caregiver, and practitioner experiences; innovate on increased comfort and ergonomics of the device; enhance patient safety by anticipating and rectifying potential sources of human error; and reduce the risk of costly late-stage design changes.

With Human Factors Design, designers and engineers can consider all possible human factors to validate the medical device design during its concept phase. They can create and animate a wide range of realistic human models and postures to simulate the interactions between the patient and the device, the environment, and other humans. High performance visualization with human perception and virtual reality provide a realistic understanding of the patient experience and potential sources of human error. Designers and engineers can easily explore device design variants to select the optimal design for further development based on human factors evaluation and feedback.
