What is Usability Engineering? 

 The usability of IVDs is an important aspect for patient safety, for the efficient application of the devices, as well as for satisfied users. IVD manufacturers are responsible for all necessary activities relating to usability in accordance with IEC 62366-1 for all IVD medical devices. 

The usability studies, also called summative evaluation, must be conducted to reveal user errors. In context, real users interact with prototypes or pilot batches to assess the learning and memory conduciveness, simplicity of use, efficiency, and/or attractiveness for the user. Usability studies may be conducted in a laboratory environment, in a simulated environment, or in the real environment of the intended use.
