Medical Device Testing
Medical device testing is a critical step in the design and validation of any medical device. There are generally two types of medical device testing. In a formative test, the goal is to provide a set of specific design recommendations to improve the safety and overall experience, prior to final development or production. In a summative test, the goal is to validate the safety of a device by measuring use errors associated with a core set of critical tasks using a fully functional prototype or a device that is in production.
