Human factors/usability testing of medical devices not only makes the product better by designing with the user as the focal point it is also an FDA requirement as part of the 510(k) or PMA submission.
If you are responsible for getting a medical device ready for market we have extensive experience in this area and have prepared a presentation to educate on how we can help your company and product. For further information or questions on our Usability Testing processes please contact Intersection-Inc.or direct contact Milt Halsted at 949-533-9352.
