Human factors in medical device design specify three aspects for consideration: the device user, device interface and context of use. The device users should be involved throughout the design of medical devices undertaking any of three roles as an informer, a validation consultant, or an active design member. This survey research highlights the perceptions of healthcare professionals and consumer citizens on the user experience of medical devices. This is achieved by collecting views on the various aspects of user experience, lived experiences, and level of engagement afforded to the user groups during device design and development.
