About the Conference:

Medical device human factors engineering and usability testing executives play an integral role in ensuring medical products can be used safely and intuitively by healthcare professionals, caregivers, and patients, mitigating the risks of user error and meeting increasing FDA regulatory demands surrounding validation of human factors research. Taking a full-lifecycle approach, this meeting not only considers the human factors and user experience research required for product design and development, but also the incorporation of post-market research and feedback on new product iterations as well as changes to products to reduce risks and increase safe usability.
