Human factors is the study of how users interacts with a device, their environment and the information given to them.
Our team uses human factors to design devices that are easier to understand, and more comfortable to use.
A Task Analysis is a research tool used to micro analyse a user during a process.
The analysis enables in-depth information regarding all actions, timings, environments, risks ,and opportunities a user is faced with.
For product and medical device design the goal of a task analysis is to clarify a the usability of a product, develop insights and create a teaching aid for others.
Observational studies can be controlled or open-ended bodies of research into the perception, cognition ,and actions of a user. By doing this we provide insights into how a user engages with a product or medical device, and discover how it can be improved.
