Instructions for Use (IFU)
A great device is only as good as the Instructions for Use (IFU) that accompany it. Our proven expertise and understanding of good information design allows us to deliver high quality and cost effective solutions to our clients.
An ageing population and the need to radically reduce healthcare costs across the globe, is leading to an increase in more sophisticated medical devices and combined drug devices. But a great device is only as good as the Instructions for Use (IFU) that accompany it.
Devices rely almost wholly on their IFU for safe and effective use. Failure to use the device properly can put patients at risk.
How we can help
Luto can help you develop clear and understandable IFUs, instruction manuals and packaging.
We know that your brand is important and this should be reflected in your IFUs. We can work with you to review your existing IFUs and can create a new design template that aligns with your corporate house style and works across your range of devices.
We also offer a full human factors service to test your IFU’s and medical devices.
- Our development process is iterative and formative.
- We involve users (patients and healthcare professionals) at key stages of the process.
- We offer formative and summative usability testing in the EU and USA.
