Human Factors & Usability

As more and more practitioners incorporate cutting-edge technology into health care, usability and human factors studies become a critical aspect in the overall medical device design process. CAMLS Innovation Center utilizes focus groups, innovation workshops and real-world simulation scenarios to evaluate and test how medical device technology is used by practitioners. These tests are custom designed to provide clients with usable, quantifiable feedback on ergonomic design, ease of use, productivity and safety.  Our testing applies what we know about human behavior, perception, and cognition to assist our clients in the creation of safer, more usable and reliable products.

Utilizing in-house high-fidelity acute care environments, surgical skills labs, trauma OR, “hybrid” catheterization suite, focus-group and observational space, and medical classrooms, CAMLS is uniquely equipped and staffed to recruit, test, record and report findings in the following areas:

Ethnographic/observational Research
Use Error Patterns
Procedural Mapping
Labeling Comprehension
Formative/Summative Usability
Ergonomics
User Evaluations

“I am extremely impressed with the quality of the participants recruited for our Human Factors Study.  The participants for this study are very engaged and enthusiastic and have the exact backgrounds that we were looking for.  I really appreciate all of your efforts and I am so happy we found CAMLS!”
