Welcome to Human Factors Centre

Human Factors, Usability & User Research

Guiding companies through the Human Factors & Usability Engineering Process, whilst ensuring world class user experience.

Our Services

We offer a full suite of Human Factors and Usability services, including constructing all regulatory documentation required by IEC2366-1/2 and the FDA. We conduct Formative and Summative Usability Testing as well as support companies earlier on in the design process to identify user needs and conduct exploratory research.

End-to-End Support

Whether you are at the start of your product development or midway through, we can help you to not only ensure that your devices are safe to use but also meet the needs of the intended users.

Our services span across early in-market research which includes Ethnography and Contextual Inquiries to assist in collecting user needs as well as conducting exploratory assessments to help identify the strengths and weakness of a concept.

We also help companies with the identification of use-related risks, the assigning of appropriate design controls, the writing of testable and technical user requirements to fuel design development and the validation of the effectiveness of controls to ensure the device is safe and meets the needs of the intended user.

Documentation we assist with:

  • Use Specification
  • User Interface Evaluation Plan
  • Use-Related Risk Analysis
  • User Interface Specification (Requirements)
  • Formative Protocols
  • Discussion Guides and Reports
  • Summative Protocols
  • Discussion Guides and Reports
  • HF/UE report (for FDA)
