The key to profitability and success in both the medical device and the equipment markets often relates to how easy your products are to use. User acceptance and preference frequently is dependent upon ergonomic design.
Medical Device and Equipment Design helps you enhance your product design, maximize user acceptance, and minimize potential problems in the marketplace. It provides practical guidance on how to plan and incorporate ergonomic design principles into medical devices and equipment so users intuitively feel comfortable with the product.
Design engineers, usability and reliability engineers, software programmers, documentation specialists, product managers, quality engineers, and market/product managers will find this text invaluable in getting usability built into products from the very beginning.
