Beaumont Technology Usability Center To Offer Training For Medical Technology Companies

ROYAL OAK, Mich., Sept. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The Beaumont Technology Usability Center (BTUC) will offer training aimed at helping smaller and start-up medical technology companies speed their product commercialization process.

In December 2007, FDA regulators will join BTUC product-usability and human-factors experts to conduct a webinar focusing on effective methods for meeting FDA risk assessment requirements. In early 2008, the organizations will offer an expanded, one-day, hands-on seminar in Michigan to introduce methods for human factors and usability testing, for containing research and design costs, and for navigating regulatory approval processes.

"Many small medical device companies do not have the internal resources to focus on these topics and are often unaware of the risk management practices that regulators expect to see in a product approval application," says Steve Ebben, Vice President of Planning & Marketing for BTUC. "By teaming with the FDA, we can offer training that will help firms that are new to the medical device industry while providing a valuable resource for the Michigan economy."

BTUC plans to offer the seminar in other venues throughout 2008.

For more information about the training, contact Michael Tanner, Director of Commercialization Services, at 248-551-0567 or visit
