Stent Placement Requires Finesse

Finesse and feel are critical to the surgeon during a stent placement procedure. Surgeons must navigate the process through both macro and micro adjustments while confirming the stent’s location on the monitor. This requires a thorough analysis of work flow and process, while including critical human factors such as grip architecture and articulation issues.

Detailed Work Flow Analysis

An in-depth analysis of the work flow and process behind stent placement procedures provides insight into the user requirements. Each step is accounted for, beginning with the decision that a procedure is needed and ending when the patient is discharged from the hospital.

Feature Design

Using the workflow analysis, features and details of the device are designed to accommodate the user’s needs. By creating mock-ups and prototypes early in the design process, ergonomics can be tested and verified.
