Whatever the medical device is, the final aim of the development process is to provide user a product with an acceptable risk/benefit ratio. On one hand we seek to lower the medical device related risk. On the other hand, we try to reach the highest levels of efficacy.
A common and important point of both elements of this ratio that drives the development of medical devices is the usability.
First, regarding the risk, a recent FDA recall study shown that 44% of medical device recalls are due to design problems, and user errors are often linked to the poor user experience.
On the other side, treating a patient with a medical device frequently requires a more complex sequence of actions than the “simple” delivery of a drug. Consequently the efficacy of a medical device is closely linked to the product usability.
Usability and user experience are the key ingredients to get an acceptable risk/benefit ratio.
At Sophysa, we believe that usability and user experience of medical devices should never be a brake to patient management. That is why in every development we do, we keep challenging the status quo to provide you a unique user experience enabling you to be totally dedicated to your patient.
Over the last 40 years, in accordance with our vision, we put all our effort in developing ground-breaking solutions improving user experience for a better patient management in the fields of CSF Management and Neuro ICU.
Here are some concrete and well-known example of this dedication to usability :
