Every year at Catalyst UX we do a roundup of what we see as the top UX trends for the coming year. Our picks are basedon experience we have with our clients in medical and life sciences, financial services and other work in IoT and cloud. Largely, UX trends are driven by macro changes in […]
Designing and manufacturing medical and life sciences devices is always a challenge. Linear motion components with the required form, fit, and function are often vital parts of these devices. Most such components are bought off the shelf. But what if standard linear motion products don’t work, or don’t fit, or can’t deliver quite the right […]
Active implantable medical devices(AIMDs) are complex products subject to rigorous regulatory standards by authorities across the globe. With both implantable and non‐implantable factors, as well as EMC and wireless considerations, manufacturers have a lengthy list of standards to know and to which they must comply. It is important to know which standards and requirements apply […]
