Welcome to Inspired Usability

The best design starts with good user understanding. Inspired Usability supports the medical device and pharmaceutical industry by going beyond the regulatory Human Factors requirements and helping to create truly inspirational products.

Whether you are starting your medical device or combination product journey and want true user insight, or navigating the Human Factors regulatory requirements or looking for independent usability testing, Inspired Usability can provide you with design support and services tailored to your individual project needs.


Empathetic Human Factors

We draw inspiration from our sensitive user research and we want to share our insights with you.

Using a range of Human Factors methods, we apply rigour and creativity to your design process; we facilitate the development of medical devices and submission files that are, of course, always compliant with regulations and delight the people using them.
