Usability & Human Factor Engineering Consulting

What Is HFE and Usability? 


There are several terms commonly used to describe the science behind incorporating effective and safe use into a device’s design, including “usability,” “human factors engineering (HFE)” and “ergonomics.” HFE has been added to regulatory requirements to reduce medical device use error, create more operator friendly and intuitive devices and reduce the training costs for both manufacturers and end-users.


From New MDR 2017/745:


“Devices shall achieve the performance intended by their manufacturer and shall be designed and manufactured in such a way that, during normal conditions of use, they are suitable for their intended purpose. They shall be safe and effective and shall not compromise the clinical condition or the safety of patients, or the safety and health of users or, where applicable, other persons, provided that any risks which may be associated with their use constitute acceptable risks when weighed against the benefits to the patient and are compatible with a high level of protection of health and safety, taking into account the generally acknowledged state of the art”

IEC 62366 is the reference standard for medical device usability matter and specifies a process for a manufacturer to analyze, describe, develop, and validate the usability of a medical device as it relates to safety:


Part 1 has been updated to include contemporary concepts of usability engineering, while also streamlining the process.


Part 2  provides more detailed descriptions of usability engineering methods that can be applied generally to medical devices.

Why HFE and Usability are important?

  • European data: medical errors occur in 8% to 12% of hospitalizations [source: WHO][/source:]
  • CE marking of Medical Devices will mandate human factors assessment [Reg. EU 2017/745, from 2020][/Reg.]

Main HFE and Usability Guidance:

ANSI/AAMI HE75 Human Factors Engineering – Design of Medical Devices
