BackgroundAcademic literature and international standards bodies suggest that user involvement, via the incorporation of human factors engineering methods within the medical device design and development (MDDD) process, offer many benefits that enable the development of safer and more usable medical devices that are better suited to users' needs. However, little research has been carried out to explore medical device manufacturers' beliefs and attitudes towards user involvement within this… Expand
COLLABORATIVE DESIGN PROCESSES IN MEDICAL DEVICE DEVELOPMENT
The medical device industry creates life changing innovation and advances the practice of medicine, the health of consumers and provides employment. (AdvaMed 2014) The device industry, along with theExpand
Integration of human factors and ergonomics during medical device design and development: it's all about communication.
TLDR
The aim of the research reported here was to better understand the constraints under which medical device design and development take place, and to propose the use of mediating representations in designing for safety and usability. Expand
Human factors in the design of medical devices - Approaches to meeting international standards in the European Union and USA.
TLDR
The challenges of meeting agency requirements as it pertains to the application of human factors in the medical device development (MDD) process have the potential to be resolved but only with greater commitment by both medical device users and developers. Expand
External Barriers to User-Centred Development of Bespoke Medical Devices in the UK
It is widely accepted that user-centred approaches to the development process produces better products and therefore brings commercial rewards. Despite such acceptance, the majority of manufacturersExpand
The involvement of users in the design of home use medical devices : challenges and incentives for change
TLDR
The greatest challenge to involving users in the design of home use medical devices are the internal corporate and traditionally hierarchical barriers between stakeholders within the design process. Expand

Integrating the results of user research into medical device development: insights from a case study
TLDR
A case study of the development of a new medical imaging device was conducted to examine in detail how users were involved in a medical device development project and the barriers that exist to prevent user data from being integrated into product development. Expand
The effect of design on the usability and real world effectiveness of medical devices: a case study with adolescent users.
TLDR
It is found that adolescent users of the acapella(®) device do not use the device as regularly and correctly as is recommended by clinicians. Expand
Innovators’ views on involving users and patients in surgical device development: a qualitative interview study
Objectives Involving end-users and patients in the development of surgical devices, even when patients are not end-users, is deemed important in policy and in academia since it could improveExpand
User knowledge factors that hinder the design of new home healthcare devices: investigating thirty-eight devices and their manufacturers
  • Fan Yang, A. Al Mahmud, Tao Wang
  • Computer Science, Medicine
  • BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making
  • 2021
TLDR
The users’ characteristics and needs were not sufficiently reflected in developing new home healthcare devices and one root cause was that the end-users were not perceived by the manufacturers as a key success factor in most cases. Expand
