Medical Specifications For User Interfaces
Medical user interface products have the unique characteristics of needing to be easy to use and understand, along with being able to handle the physical environment that they will encounter.
Our experience in the medical industry helps us design and manufacture high reliability user interfaces that make the users interaction as simple and efficient as possible.
Manufacturing user interfaces for medical devices requires many different but proven techniques. They need to withstand the significant daily usage, constant exposure to a variety of cleaning chemicals and the potential for physical damage (as many medical devices are portable).
At Epec, we have experience in both the design and implementation of the following Medical Standards.
- IEC 60601 - Medical Electrical Equipment
- IEC 62366 - Medical Devices – Application of usability engineering to medical devices
