The Corona pandemic showed us again how important medical products are to save lives. Since those products are often used in stressful situations, they need to be easy and intuitive to use. As part of the user interface of a medical product, also the information for use need to be written user friendly. Usability engineering can be the key for increasing user satisfaction and patient safety.
