The first steps to shaping your medical product’s look and feel It is important to define medical device ID strategy early, especially when form and function are often closely intertwined. This exercise is most useful once a company is ready to begin developing a tangible product. Defining your industrial design strategy can help ease some […]
When I finished my third year of Industrial Design studies at Carleton University, I felt like I had a good grasp of the whole thing. I had finished a good number of design projects, worked out my own design process, and learned what worked for me and what didn’t. While it was still lots of […]
Sketching plays an important role as a tool or skill in the industrial design process. It’s an essential way to visualize ideas and draft basic layouts of the design for each direction chosen. It’s also the quickest way to communicate with clients and engineers without requiring a prototype or 3D rendering. Medical device sketching can […]
I once observed simulated combat first responder training for military medics. I asked the leader (who was a retired army colonel and physician) if their students were making what seemed like basic mistakes to me because they know it isn’t real and therefore aren’t performing at their best. He responded he had seen many times […]
It is up to the medical UX designer to thoroughly research their users, environment, and product to produce a user friendly medical device. This blog focuses on 3 Medical UX design differences between the graphical user interfaces (GUI) of digital displays in medical devices and consumer products. Like consumer design, the medical field is spread […]
From a regulatory standpoint the differences between IEC 62366:2007 and IEC 62366 -1:2015 are minimal, with all the same boxes needing to be ticked. However, it is clear from reading the documentation that the whole process has been streamlined, using more familiar language and on the whole a more usable standard. Probably a good thing […]
June is the month of many university graduations. In the spirit of continuous education, we asked our writers to identify medical device project tips they’ve learned from on the job experience. Here are 11 solid tips that will help you commercialize your medical device.
Computer games and medical device design both begin conceptually in a somewhat similar space – a point where reality and science fiction meet. From there the directions they take are infinitely different but the processes are virtually identical. I recently spoke on a panel at our local Global Game Jam (the world’s largest game jam […]
Three years ago I migrated from medical device design and development to the client side of Digital Health. I had the privilege of leading and managing components of transformational initiatives related to Electronic Health Record, also known (and preferred by users) as Clinical Information Systems. This experience changed my thinking about medical design excellence.
A good User Interface (UI) improves usability for any medical device UX Design. Even if your device has all the needed functions and features and your workflow is proven based upon research and testing, the UI that users interact with is where they really gauge the experience of the device. For medical devices, documenting the […]
