AN OVERVIEW OF WHAT MEDICAL DEVICE DEVELOPERS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HUMAN FACTORS: Jon Speer & Bryant Foster

December 20, 2017 , in Design Controls and Global Medical Device Podcast and Human Factors

The topic of human factors can be confusing: How does it relate to design factors and risk? Why is it included in the regulations and how can this factor be handled?

Bryant Foster, the Vice President of Research & Design at Research Collective, applies the principles of cognitive psychology to the design of new technologies and is a great resource on the topic.

SOME HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS EPISODE INCLUDE:

  • What Bryant does as the VP of Research & Design at Research Collective and what his main focus is.
  • The differences, overlaps, and intersections between human factors, design controls, project development, and research and development as these processes fit into the medical device industry.
  • How companies should address the human factors standpoint.
  • Common mistakes to avoid when considering the human factors.
  • Human factors in usability and ergonomics as well as the difference between formative studies and validation.
  • What a task analysis is and how that relates to the overall risk assessment.
  • The importance of considering the various users of the product or device.
  • What human factors has to do with post-market usability.
