This webinar will explain the procedure described in ISO62366 and the 2016 FDA Guidance for a compliant human factors/usability validation.

HF/U validation is very different from device validation. For example, success criteria is qualitative rather than quantitative as is in device validation. Claiming success because eg. 95% of test participants did not commit a user error is not valid. Nor is 100% positive test results sufficient.

Why should you Attend: Following the implementation of the results of a Human Factors/Usability study, a validation of the safety and effectiveness of the use of the device must be conducted. We will explain the FDA required number of validation participants from each "distinct user population". We will explain how to choose the tests to be conducted and the studies that must be completed prior to the actual validation test. The post test participant inquiry is critical to validation success. we will describe how to do this.

  • Required number of Participants
  • Test Procedure
  • Qualitative Success Criteria
  • Choice of Tasks to Validate
  • Post test Participant Inquiry

Who Will Benefit:
  • Engineer
  • Engineering Manager
  • Regulatory Personnel
