Medical Design & Usability Engineering
DESIGN FOR LIFE AND QUALITY OF LIFE
Health is becoming a key issue for the future. You need more than a safe, approved product to be successful in the medical markets. Take advantage of our experience in medical technology and healthcare products to develop real innovation.
A BALANCE BETWEEN PURE FUNCTIONALITY, OPERATING LOGIC AND AESTHETIC DESIGN
To ensure this balance, we work closely with practitioners, nurses and doctors. Wherever possible, we look at the work environment and processes in detail. In an emergency, it should not take long or be difficult to see which button to press - it must be obvious at first glance. In order to standardize the operation of the various devices and systems, guidelines exist for their design and labeling. A modified operating logic would disrupt the workflow and lead to errors. To ensure optimal usability, we work to the DIN EN 62366 standard. This approach is a central, although still very new, part of the development of medical devices that indicates that ease of use is being taken ever more seriously. These guidelines and requirements by legislators (CE, FDA or SFDA) are the ones that make the difference between product design and medical design. We must, however, never lose sight of the trends in medical technology toward the adjacent fields of homecare, wellness and rehabilitation.
