About IEC 62366
Poor usability in medical devices can lead to hazardous situations and result in harm. The IEC 62366 standard provides a framework for establishing usability processes in the development of a medical device.
Human interaction and the characteristics of the user interface that are intended to facilitate use and thereby establish effectiveness, efficiency and user satisfaction in the intended use environment are important factors that need to be taken into account.
IEC 62366 relation to other standards
Usability and the IEC 62366 standard are primarily strongly linked to the ISO 14971 risk management standard for medical devices.
Another document that is used in a supportive manner and is a pragmatic guide to usability or provides many good practical examples is AAMI HE 75 “Human Factor Engineering – Design of Medical Devices”.
