User Interfaces for Medical Devices
Time & Location
About the Event
User interfaces are increasingly seen by product developers as the key differentiator between competing products. The more user-friendly and impressive the user interface, the easier it is to market the product, especially when a lot of the core capability of a device is hidden behind bland boxes or buried in algorithms that are hard to visualise. Where the user interface plays a key role in the diagnosis or treatment of a patient, it is subject to rigorous examination as part of the regulatory approval process.
This presentation examines the process of developing a user interface in compliance with IEC 62366, including from an industrial design perspective and a software engineering perspective. We look at wireframes and prototyping as well as the heuristic principles and key tips/tricks for making a user interface more intuitive. Methods for analysing risks and typical sources of risk associated with the user interfaces are examined. Finally, we look at best practices in software engineering to ensure that user interfaces for both embedded LCD screens and remote Apps are implemented in a safe and robust manner in full compliance with IEC 62304.
The presentation is delivered by George Beau-Rizk, Head of Software Operations Genesys Electronics Design and James Brennan at Tiller Design
