Webinar: Design Considerations for An Aging Population

/aamiresources/images/events/webinar.jpg
Description: Adults begin to experience age-related physical and perceptual changes at a surprisingly young age. By 2030, twenty percent of Americans will be over the age of 65. Further, the 80 years-old-plus demographic is one of the fastest growing groups in the United States. Older adults are more likely to use medical devices, and a variety of economic, technological, and lifestyle trends have resulted in many devices being used in the home, rather than in clinical environments. Importantly, significant challenges come with designing for an aging population. Older adults may experience challenges related to mobility, stability, memory and other important characteristics. These challenges are often under-appreciated by younger professionals responsible for medical device design. This webinar reviews aging and it implications for medical device design. It divides challenges into physical, perceptual, cognitive, emotional and socio-cultural categories.

Webinar: How To Write Usable Research Results

/aamiresources/images/events/webinar.jpg
Description:

This webinar will illustrate, through real-world examples, how usability research results can be used to inform the safe design of medical devices. An expert in medical device human factors will guide you through the process of defining task success criteria. We will discuss strategies for performing task analyses and identifying what the user must perceive, understand and do to safely use the device. Furthermore, we will describe how use errors are linked back to the task analysis to uncover their root causes and translated into a concise list of design requirements or criteria.

Webinar: Strategies to Conduct High-Integrity Validation Usability Tests

/aamiresources/images/events/webinar.jpg
Description: During this webinar, the presenters will review the myriad ways a validation test could be biased and ways to avoid it, thereby serving in the best interests of the manufacturer. Trying not to sound pious or self-righteous, the presenters will address the reality that personnel at some companies naively try to "take it easy" on a product when they are best served to challenge the quality of a device's user interface by introducing critical and particularly challenging use scenarios.
