Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The growing generation of miniaturized medical devices requires developers to re-evaluate their design processes. New products must take account of a non-technical user base, large production volumes, shorter product lifetimes and pressure to reduce production and purchasing costs. This article looks at some of the strategies design and development teams can adopt to meet those challenges.
