Expertise You Can Trust


At UserWise, our human factors consultants have worked on a vast variety of medical devices and combination products spanning numerous medical disciplines, use environments, and user groups. From crafting relevant justifications to creating an accurate model of the use environment for the summative testing, our experienced team can lead you through the entire usability engineering process. Our consultants will develop a customized usability engineering plan for your specific medical device based on the user, use environment, target submission, and complexity of your medical product. We regularly work with all relevant human factors standards, regulations and guidances including those required for CE Mark, FDA approval, and electrical safety testing.
