Usability study leads to key medical device design improvements

A team from Three Circles recently completed a 2 week long formative usability study for a medical device in Europe.

The study was typical of the more complex designs we undertake, involving 2 device concepts, both of which were for use in two distinct use scenarios. Further complexity was added by there being several distinct and different target user groups, some received training, others did not. We designed the study to satisfy a wide-ranging client brief, created a detailed study protocol, and executed it using a bespoke interview facility.

“really pleased with everything, well organised and executed” – study sponsor

Each study session was between 30 and 60 minutes long.

Analysis, input to client risk management and design changes, reporting and client sign off was achieved within 2 weeks of study completion.

“we appreciated the quality and precision of the study design and reporting. We’re already making design changes based on what you found” – client
