Usability Testing Lab

The multifunctional Usability Testing Lab enables both formative and summative usability tests with medical professionals for any type of medical technology. Whether it’s software-based applications or hardware-based devices, the lab’s equipment allows for comprehensive trials and usability studies for user-based evaluation.

High immersion through context of use simulations

The simulation of medical technology context of use ensures the fulfillment of regulatory requirements for workflow realism and identifies valuable optimization potentials for human-machine interaction. Our facilities enable true-to-life replication of use environments in hospitals, operating rooms, laboratories, and home care settings to conduct medical usability tests, interviews, technology acceptance, and market research activities.

Anatomical Usability Operating Room

The usability study of certain medical products requires a higher degree of realism in the context of use to make informed statements. In cooperation with the University Hospital Tübingen, USE-Ing. offers the possibility of conducting user interface and usability evaluations within the framework of cadaver workshops.

Usability tests and ergonomic studies on cadavers

Usability evaluations using cadavers are essential in the development of certain medical products. Specific ergonomic studies demand a higher level of realism in the context of use, surpassing what can be achieved through simulations in basic usability laboratories. This is particularly true for medical products and instruments in the fields of orthopedics, trauma surgery, and neurosurgery.

Fully equipped anatomical laboratory

The fully equipped operating room enables the simulation of all anatomical procedures, such as cervical implant placements, biopsies, or bone marrow punctures. Our usability experts plan with you individually the procedure to be simulated and organize individually prepared topographical units from body donors, organs, or tissues.

Conducting anatomical usability evaluations

The execution of procedures on human cadavers is only permissible by medical professionals. Our team supports you in this process from recruiting knowledgeable physicians and surgeons to conducting the tests. We document the findings in a goal-oriented manner, enabling both the regulatory necessary usability file and the derivation of optimization potentials in product development.

Future UX & Workflow Lab

With the Future UX & Workflow Lab, USE-Ing. facilitates human-centered innovation in the early phases of medical product development and explores the future of Human Factors & Usability Engineering.

Workflow studies in mixed-reality simulations

How do the various actors interact in the operating room? How can the existing workflows be optimized? How do new applications change work processes? Our experts analyze medical workflows using modern UX methods and identify optimization potentials. In Mixed and Virtual Reality scenarios, valuable insights can be gained in the early stages of medical product development to make medical technology applications more effective and user-centered.
