This training day is also suitable to design professionals in general who work with usability of safety critical systems theme in practice or are leading these activities.
Aim of training day
To learn what is required from medical device usability by EU regulations and by US FDA. To find out the status and content of standards and guidance for compliance. To deepen the understanding of the relationship between risk management and usability. Training covers also overview of typical usability engineering techniques, concentrating more deeply into medical device (including software) usability testing as a crucial method of evaluation. This practical training day includes best practice examples of medical device usability engineering and user interface design.
