Human Factors Engineering

Our Human Factors Engineering team studies the way people work, making sure that we understand the intricacies of the tasks users perform and the information they need along the way. Their research, testing, and engineering help us identify and address critical usability issues early on, before a design is finalized, saving time and money, and preventing future headaches for our clients.

Expertise to take a project from start to finish

During the development of medical devices, Human Factors Engineering plays a crucial role in designing products that fit the capabilities and limitations of the people who use them.
