Andreas Böhler

Open Source Software and programming near the hardware level have always been favourite topics of mine. Building medical devices in either of these areas requires more than in-depth technical knowledge and experience.

While working on a project, I'll be glad to guide you long-term, from the initial idea to the final device to the post market surveillance with my knowledge.

Usability Engineering (EN 62366), Medical IT Networks (IEC 80001-1)

Melanie Baumgartner

The increasing degree of innovation in medical technologies leads to a lot of positive aspects, such as the assistance for healthcare professionals and the improved quality of life for patients. Unfortunately, there are also high risks in the development of innovative medical devices. Therefore, it is my obligation to support companies developing their products.

There are two main professional focuses: Usability Engineering allows to implement optimal “user-product interfaces” and, with the help of IT-Risk Management, risks caused by implementing medical devices into a medical IT-network can be analyzed and controlled accurately.
