With increasing level of advancement and complexity in medical devices, there is a need for methodology, tools and techniques in practice to integrate Human Factors and Usability (HF/U) elements in design due to its increasing diversity of users and rapidly changing interface types. This paper proposes a methodology to develop a tailor-made HF/U design guidelines for medical device development with various sources and to develop heuristics for evaluation and score the product usability throughout the development process.
