Best Practices for Human-Centric Design of Medical Devices
Medical devices designed to accommodate human variability present a growing opportunity for the healthcare and life sciences industries. Historically, medicine has solved many of the “simple” issues first: how to fix a broken leg has been known for centuries! But today we have treatments that didn’t even exist a generation ago, such as the use of stents and replacement valves for heart disease. These devices address a more limited cohort of people and are most successful when designed to be patient-specific. The cohorts themselves must also be further defined to account...

10 Ways to Design Error-Resistant Medical Devices
Medical devices should be designed to provide the best possible user experience, while reducing the risk of errors that can result in harm, injury, or compromised medical care. To do this, 21 CFR 820:30 states that “…when designing a device, the manufacturer should conduct appropriate human factors studies, analyses, and tests from the early stages of the design process until that point in development at which the interfaces with the medical professional and the patient are fixed…” However, in an interview with MD+DI, Gia Rozells, director of user ...

Design Formulation for Drug Delivery Devices
In pharmaceutical industries, medicines are developed to treat certain illnesses. There are several types of delivery systems with which these medicines can be administered into the human or animal body. Injectable medicines are mainly administered with the help of syringes or delivery devices. Syringes or delivery devices are used with needles to inject the medicine or drug into the body. However, a major challenge is to develop the syringe or delivery device which can be used to deliver the drug under the skin with more comfort and less pain. Injecting the drug under the skin with the help of syringes is mostly dependent...

Five Keys to Safety-Critical Design in Medtech
This article will outline several keys to designing with safety in mind that address some of the most common blunders that threaten the development process. 1. Go Beyond the Standards The United States mandates compliance with standards for the software development lifecycle (SDLC) of safety-critical projects. The standard for the medical device SDLC is IEC 62304. It lays out detailed procedures for documenting and monitoring nearly every aspect of software specification, design, coding, and testing, as well as rigorous standards for oversight, compliance, and certification. In order to ensure safer software, d...

How Smart are Your Design Inputs?
Design inputs, and design controls in general can be challenging to get right, according to Jessica Lyons, a customer success expert at Greenlight Guru. "There's almost an art to it.  I find that most of the people I talk to struggle the most with how to define user needs and design inputs," Lyons told MD+DI. "They tend to fall into two camps - those who over specify their inputs and those whose inputs feel more like user needs. It's a very important distinction." Lyons spoke at MD&M Minneapolis about the importance of design inputs and shared some tips for attendees on h...

Creating the Best Design Plan for Your Device
Every medical device on the market once began as a simple idea crafted to solve a problem. Despite the best intentions of every device developer, many of these ideas fail to reach their potential given the challenging road from original concept to delivered product. This is why crafting a quality design plan has become a crucial element to success for device developers, as it helps us define what needs to be done, when it needs to be done, and who will actually do it. These days, a proper design plan can provide developers with a step-by-step roadmap for medical device creation, ensuring that no detail goes unnoticed. Unfo...

Getting the Most Out of Your Design Review
Conclusion Brad’s story is common. One of the biggest mistakes made when faced with a time crunch is to short cut design reviews. In fact, discovering and solving issues after fabrication of the design typically ends up costing much more in time and budget than a design review. And Brad’s next project? Armed with a process and a plan for communication, Brad successfully completed and delivered his schematic to team members on time, resulting in a well-executed design review, on schedule!

User Research Can Create Roadmap for Design
When starting a project, design options seem endless while timelines and budgets are often tight. How do you know which opportunity areas are most impactful or should be addressed first? By leveraging user research, an informed development roadmap can be created. Define goals and objectives – This seems obvious, but stakeholders and development project teams must communicate goals and objectives clearly and define their focus: is the goal to increase market share, reduce production cost, reduce support costs, etc.? Outlining these objectives at the project start and referring to them often will help establish the scope a...

Design Controls: Regulatory Burden or Good Engineering?
It is popular to rail against regulations generally, and blame the regulatory burden for stifling innovation. This is especially, but not exclusively, true in the digital space, where structured design is anathema and freewheeling, make-it-up-as-you-go-along is the admired style. Software development captures this in its spiral design method in which work begins before you have all of the requirements. This style is facilitated by software itself since it is relatively easy to start, add to, and change, the latter exemplified by the reality of frequent “updates” and multiple digit version numbers. But weak design meth...

What Medtech Can Learn from Starbucks
In the medical device industry, it's common to see innovations that gain traction in the marketplace because of an unmet need it fills that clinicians have specifically asked for because they knew it would make their job easier in some way and lead to better patient outcomes. On the other hand, there are times that the marketplace goes gangbusters for something they would have never even thought to ask for. During a panel session on product design at MD&M West, Dave Saunders, used coffee as a prime example of that.  "If you ask people to describe their perfect cup of coffee they'll tell you 'rich, bold, dark roast', ...

Medical Device Design Is Critical to Bringing Healthcare into the Home
Medical technology is going consumer. Both patients and care givers hold an increasing expectation that the devices they use to manage care will operate with the same ease and usability as the digital products they use every day to manage their lives. As healthcare moves to a home setting, patients require design elements that make the technology easier to use, more intuitive, and more accessible. Medical device companies are responding by focusing during design and development on those needs that are harder to tease out. To succeed in this potential consumer market, the biggest asset to any device is good design and prod...

Could Targeted Medical Information Help Develop Better Devices?
Do you know how your browsing information can be used? Nigel Syrotuck   Five years ago, The New York Times famously ran a piece explaining how Target sent maternity coupons to a customer that they (correctly) inferred was pregnant by examining her purchase history, before she had even told her family about it. More recently, Gizmodo ran a story about a person who was (incorrectly) targeted with a mailed letter inviting her to join a psoriasis clinical trial. Not only did she not have psoriasis, but the only relevance to her was that she had researched psoriasis and other skin care topics online recently. These two...

How medical device risk management is connected with design controls
[Image by Helloquence on Unsplash]Medical device design controls play an important role when it comes to risk management, but the relationship isn’t always immediately clear. Intended use is especially important, says Jon Speer, founder of Greenlight.guru (Indianapolis), which markets a cloud-based quality management software. “If you don’t have a clear order or boundaries for conducting your risk management activities, it can be someone nebulous, somewhat overwhelming. … That’s where the intended use helps with that,” Speer said.
