UX (user experience) design processes are constantly evolving as the industry continues to embrace IoT technologies. With this evolution comes a need to focus on improving UX protocols in the design of medical devices.
By applying HFE principles early on, packaging design can evolve beyond usability evaluations in product development cycles to ultimately ensure a better user experience and safe execution.
The expansion of BlackHӓgen’s HFE team and other critical usability-focused design groups, such as the UX team, will support the company’s ability to deliver its expertise to a wider range of MedTech customers.
Part II of this series proposes that structured expert judgment, when integrated into the current HFE/UE paradigm, can help overcome some of the current limitations of HFE/UE.
This series makes the argument for probability assessments in HFE/UE for medical devices and how to incorporate it into the paradigm.
Manufacturers can rely upon internal human factors engineers and/or external consultants to apply HFE effectively during device development.
