Usability Principles for Medical Devices: Interpreting and Implementing IEC 62366

Availabile as a virtual, instructor-led class.

Usability / human factors analysis is becoming an area of focus within standards and global regulations. It is important to understand how your users may interact with your device in order to ensure that the device functions properly and all potential safety issues are understood. Human factors studies are part of the design process and should be integrated into device risk analysis. This course provides an overview of the requirements of IEC 62366-1:2020, including the relationship with the risk management process.
