Successful outcome from Usability Evaluation Test
At uPATCH, we design applicators for end-users and researchers. During this design process, achieving the best penetration possible is one of the most important requirements. To guarantee this, good usability and intuitive design are essential.
Ilse and Maarten conducted a user experience test to evaluate the usability of our microneedle applicators; the PLUS and the ONE. 20 participants used these microneedle applicators to apply a (dummy) microneedle patch onto their skin. All participants managed to safely and effectively apply these patches to their skin. The participants experienced the product to be simple, easy and painless. The outcome of the user test concluded that the microneedle applicators are intuitive enough to have a user apply microneedles by themselves and we discovered some points of improvement to make it even easier!
