How to Choose and Work with a UX Design Team
As consumer devices from mobile phones to smart appliances evolve to become more natural and easier to use, medtech users—physicians, nurses, techs and patients—expect medical device design to evolve as well.

A skilled designer can create a better user experience that makes your product easier to understand, more pleasant to use, and more successful with users and customers. In this article originally published in Medical Product Outsourcing magazine, ICS’ Dorothy Shamonsky, Ph.D and Stephanie Van Ness offer strategies for selecting the right design team for your specific needs, and incorporating UX into your existing product development process.
