Development and Use of Heuristics to Evaluate Neonatal Medical Devices for Use in Low-Resource Settings

Abstract Previous research has shown that for several domains and environments, developing and using domain-specific heuristics can effectively supplement general heuristics to capture additional usability problems. However, no existing heuristic set specifically addresses medical devices for use in low-resource settings, such as hospitals in low- and middle-income countries. These settings are limited by a lack […] [Read More]
