Usability & Human Factors

Human Factors, Usability & User-Centred Design

Human factors, Usability and User-Centred Design are integral aspects of our development programmes. By incorporating an explicit understanding of the users, tasks and environment into our product design and development programmes, we can create products that meet expectations, requirements and regulations.

User Research: Data-Driven Process

We understand the importance of gaining insight early by conducting thorough voice of the customer, contextual research, and formative studies into your development programme. The resulting assumptions, issues, risks and requirements are then identified, challenged and factored into our development programmes from the offset, mitigating the impact on budget and timelines.

End-to-End Integrated Solution

Our flexible programmes offer an end-to-end solution, cycling through use risk assessment and risk management phases. Although our user research and risk analysis are front loaded, both are consistently revisited and reviewed throughout the full programme. By moving through prototyping phases in-house, we are able to assess the areas of highest risk before moving towards the goal of a robust and fully tested pre-production design, ready for transfer to manufacture. Our human factors experts are also engineers; their technical experience and understanding of the development process ensures there is a focus on driving forward the user requirements, creating an integrated, user-centric approach while meeting technical constraints. Although they work closely with the project managers, our human factors team operates independently to the design teams, to remove potential bias within processes and programmes.

Usability & Human Factors

The eg technology approach to usability is to develop medical devices that are inherently safe and effective to use by design where possible, by analysis and user testing in accordance with IEC 62366. Our human factors engineers are well versed in the usability process required by the relevant standards and regulatory bodies in order to ensure medical devices and diagnostics are demonstrably safe and effective, and integrated across the full spectrum of your development schedule.

Other Expertise

We wanted to create the ultimate robotics camera control panel that is both affordable and easy to use. Our collaboration with the team at eg technology has delivered a solution that undoubtedly provides the simplest way for any producer to be able to consistently engage their audience with great, repeatable viewing experiences.

Vinten RadamecKaren Walker, Director

It is never easy to integrate the conflicting requirements of biochemistry, electrochemistry and engineering in any project, but I was very impressed with the breadth of capabilities eg technology brought to the project. Close integration with the team here at Vantix led to a smooth and efficient interface.

Vantix DiagnosticsAndy Gover, Director

eg technology delivered an injection of creativity and consumer product know-how that we, as a technology start-up, couldn’t provide in-house. We had the technology and an idea of how we wanted the hardware to work, but eg technology took these elements and turned them into a desirable consumer product that we were able to successfully take to market.

Cambridge Temperature ConceptsDr Oriane Chausiaux, Director

We were very happy with the work that eg technology did and would work with them again without hesitation.

Avacta Animal HealthAlastair Smith, Director

We selected eg technology because they seemed to be the most pragmatic and focused of the companies that we had discussed the project with. They did not let us down. At every stage they offered practical solutions and a workable programme – always a priority when you are a smaller company. They consistently delivered on time and came up with really innovative ideas and solutions to deliver for us.

"eg technology’s work was instrumental in automating the Parsortix system so that patient blood can be processed efficiently using ANGLE’s patented Parsortix technology to capture CTCs. This was a major step forward in bringing the Parsortix technology to market."

Angle PlcAndrew Newland, Director

We are very happy with the work that eg technology did for us. We are already using the rig to improve the validation process for our optical sensors and as a result increase customer satisfaction.
