HUMAN FACTORS MD was founded in 2001. Our mission has always been to provide the best of the science of human factors to our clients to aid their development of medical devices and combination products. We’ve followed that pathway ever since.
In 2016 we moved to our new facility in Charlotte, North Carolina, home to 2.5 million people and an ever growing number of healthcare professionals.

In 2016 we opened our own test facility in Charlotte, designed from the ground up for usability testing of medical devices. We incorporated exceptional video recording from multiple angles, eye tracking technology and high-bandwidth streaming.
While our Charlotte facility offers technical and financial advantages over traditional market research facilities and medical simulation labs, we use other labs throughout the country to meet the specific project requirements or at the preference of our clients.
We’ve had the opportunity to work with some TERRIFIC COMPANIES on many innovative devices covering a broad range of diagnostic and therapeutic indications.
