Cost Effective Reliability Analysis and Testing of Medical Devices

April 7, 2014 - Whitehurst J, Lucke L. Presentation at Design of Medical Devices Conference, Minneapolis, MN, April 7-10, 2014



In order to deliver safe and reliable medical devices to the field, stress testing and analysis can be done in both the design and manufacturing process. Depending on the characteristics of the system and stringency of product requirements, tests can be framed to optimize reliability confidence levels that drive lower failures in the field.
