Humanizing Healthcare Human Factors for Medical Device Design Excerpt :

This book introduces human factors engineering (HFE) principles, guidelines, and design methods for medical device design. It starts with an overview of physical, perceptual, and cognitive abilities and limitations, and their implications for design. This analysis produces a set of human factors principles that can be applied across many design challenges, which are then applied to guidelines for designing input controls, visual displays, auditory displays (alerts, alarms, warnings), and human-computer interaction. Specific challenges and solutions for various medical device domains, such as robotic surgery, laparoscopic surgery, artificial organs, wearables, continuous glucose monitors and insulin pumps, and reprocessing, are discussed. Human factors research and design methods are provided and integrated into a human factors design lifecycle, and a discussion of regulatory requirements and procedures is provided, including guidance on what human factors activities should be conducted when and how they should be documented. This hands-on professional reference is an essential introduction and resource for students and practitioners in HFE, biomedical engineering, industrial design, graphic design, user-experience design, quality engineering, product management, and regulatory affairs. Teaches readers to design medical devices that are safer, more effective, and less error prone; Explains the role and responsibilities of regulatory agencies in medical device design; Introduces analysis and research methods such as UFMEA, task analysis, heuristic evaluation, and usability testing.

Transforming our World Through Design Diversity and Education Excerpt :

Good design is enabling, and each and every one of us is a designer. Universal Design is widely recognized an important concept that should be incorporated in all person-centred policies. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) clearly stipulates that the most effective way of delivering on the promise of an inclusive society is through a Universal Design approach. Sitting at the intersection of the fields of Higher Education and Universal Design, this book presents papers delivered at the Universal Design and Higher Education in Transformation Congress (UDHEIT2018), held in Dublin, Ireland, from 30 October to 2 November 2018. This event brings together key experts from industry, education, and government and non-government organization sectors to share experiences and knowledge with all participants. The 86 papers included here are grouped under 17 headings, or themes, ranging from education and digital learning through healthcare to engagement with industry and urban design. Celebrating and integrating all that is good in design, diversity and education, this book will be a valuable resource for all those interested in the inspiring and empowering developments in both Universal Design and higher education.

Biomedical Engineering Design Excerpt :

Biomedical Engineering Design presents the design processes and practices used in academic and industry medical device design projects. The first two chapters are an overview of the design process, project management and working on technical teams. Further chapters follow the general order of a design sequence in biomedical engineering, from problem identification to validation and verification testing. The first seven chapters, or parts of them, can be used for first-year and sophomore design classes. The next six chapters are primarily for upper-level students and include in-depth discussions of detailed design, testing, standards, regulatory requirements and ethics. The last two chapters summarize the various activities that industry engineers might be involved in to commercialize a medical device. Covers subject matter rarely addressed in other BME design texts, such as packaging design, testing in living systems and sterilization methods Provides instructive examples of how technical, marketing, regulatory, legal, and ethical requirements inform the design process Includes numerous examples from both industry and academic design projects that highlight different ways to navigate the stages of design as well as document and communicate design decisions Provides comprehensive coverage of the design process, including methods for identifying unmet needs, applying Design for ‘X’, and incorporating standards and design controls Discusses topics that prepare students for careers in medical device design or other related medical fields
