Dr. Mary Beth Privitera, Research and Human Factors Principal at HS Design and Co-Chair of the AAMI Human Engineering Committee joins hsDNA to introduce her new book titled Applied Human Factors in Medical Device Design. The book began with a recognition of the new human factors guidance coming out between the FDA, MHRA, and the IUC and understanding how it all fits together. It dawned on Dr. Privitera that there wasn’t a comprehensive methodology.
The goal and challenge was to create one title which would clear the air and provide direction while highlighting the major areas within the practice of human factors.

Listen to the book preview and introduction to the 7 part series on Applied Human Factors in Medical Device Design with contributors Ian Culverhouse, Melissa Lemke and others.
