To enable increased efficiency, effectiveness and safe handling of medical equipment, applicable frameworks are needed that support evaluation work during the product development process A use centred design approach for medical devices has been developed, resulting in a framework consisting of three parts: (1) A Human Factors Engineering process, (2) Usability Quality and (3) Use Safety. In the framework different methods for data collection and evaluation of use errors and usability problems are proposed. To develop safe, usable and efficient products, the framework should be integrated with the overall product development process of the medical equipment.
