The role of human factors in the design and development of an insulin pump.

Abstract

This article discusses human factors (HF) processes and how they are applied during the development of a medical device to minimize the risk that the user interface design could lead to patient errors, adverse events, and product recalls. This process is best defined as "prevention through design." The HF design process is exemplified by three distinct… (More)
