David Copeland, Director of Human Factors Industrial Design, Ximedica
David Copeland is a director of human factors industrial design at Ximedica, leading and advising a multi-disciplined team made up of industrial designers, user interface experts, and usability specialists. The group collaborates to understand user needs and design inputs to create and develop product solutions that provide excellent usability solutions within highly technical products. Copeland and his team employ a user-centered process, working to uncover and integrate all the requirements a user needs to have a product represent. They champion these inputs within the product design and development process, working to ensure a device's fit with the user is as resolved as its function. Copeland's role as director of HFID allows him to gain perspective over all facets of the design and development process to deliver integrated and holistic product solutions to Ximedica's clientele.
