Read Frequently Asked Questions

AAMI, IEC, and the FDA have produced several important standards and guidance’s over the past decade that pertain to the user interface design and usability testing of medical devices. Choosing the right one for reference and/or helping to ensure a compliant process can be a daunting task. In this seminar, we will review the existing standards for Human Factors and Usability, including the newly published HE-75 by AAMI entitled: Human Factors for Medical Devices, a set of best practices that brings a far sharper focus and application of human factors to medical device development than ever before. Participants will learn which standards and FDA guidance’s are currently being used by evaluators and how to apply them in various design situations.

Areas Covered in the seminar:

  • Which standards apply to design vs. process for human factors?
  • How the FDA and regulatory bodies apply the standards in evaluating submissions.
  • Differences between "standards" and "guidances".
  • Brief review of the content and coverage of the new standard, HE75.
  • Where overlap exists between IEC terminology and AAMI terminology.

Who will benefit:

This webinar will apply to manufacturers with devices that require user-device interactions to set-up, operate, and maintain the device. Focus is on understanding the content and applicability to standards and guidance’s for Human Factors and Usability Engineering principles, including design best practices and an overall process for applying methods. Job functions that will benefit include:

  • Research and Development functions: software, mechanical, industrial design, systems engineering
  • Regulatory and Compliance: understanding how FDA and other notified bodies use these standards
  • Risk Management teams
