Most medical technologies were originally designed for well educated, highly trained personnel, working in a specialized medical environment. Improved technology, miniaturization, extended lifespans, and increased costs have resulted in many devices now being used in the patients' homes. However, designs have not changed accordingly. This presentation discusses several recent usability projects involving the use of technologies in the home and will focus on lessons learned from continuous glucose monitoring, total artificial hearts, and in-home cancer screening.
Identifying design criteria that make devices useful, usable and desirable in the home
Exploring use cases with the goal of getting patients back into the home, requiring the design approach to adapt
Discussing what user-centered design principles should remain and what design criteria and assumptions need to change
