HOW LONG CAN YOU HOLD THE DEVICE AGAINST THE SKIN? INSIGHTS FROM AN EMPIRICAL STUDY USING HAND-HELD AUTOINJECTORS
Andreas Schneider summarises recent empirical work investigating the ability of users of hand-held devices to complete longer injection times effectively. The study provides insights into the effects of injection duration on the force exerted by the user to hold the device against the injection site.
Allison Strochlic and Andrea Dwyer discuss the often overlooked aspect of a combination product user interface: the packaging. With a specific look at injection devices, the authors cover how to perform proper human factors testing of a combination product’s packaging, and the advantages doing so can confer to a project.
