In usability studies, also called usability tests, real users interact with one or more models of medical devices, with prototypes or samples of already manufactured medical devices to assess the learning conduciveness, simplicity of use, efficiency, memory conduciveness and/or attractiveness for the user.
Usability studies may be conducted in a laboratory environment, in a simulated environment, or in the real environment of the intended use. In particular when conducted as field studies, they are able to reveal user errors. However, as the number of test persons is rather small, failures with a low probability of occurrence cannot be detected. Therefore, the application of additional techniques, such as risk analysis, is essential.
Together with our partners we support your planning and design of your usability study. We filter the requirements for your usability study from the technical documentation and in turn integrate the results into the technical documentation.
