Medtech20® provides users of medical
devices the voice they’ve been missing.
By converting user experience to useable data, products can be optimized, which in turn increases everyday quality of life.
What is Medtech20?
Medtech20 is a standardized tool measuring how medical devices affect people’s sense of security, integrity, social participation and convenience. In short, a person’s general wellbeing.
Our method consists of two parts. First, a questionnaire, containing 20 scientifically validated questions on product features, resulting in a product profile. Second, an algorithm, containing the general population’s ranking of these features. The result is an estimate (MedTech20 Index) of how the product impacts users’ everyday quality of life from a societal perspective. A point of reference is created, thus facilitating a comparison between products.
Such information will offer new insights to the medical device industry and could be utilized to develop more user-friendly products. The healthcare sector will also benefit, as Medtech20® provides the opportunity to make better and more informed decisions.
Simply put, Medtech20 measures what no one thought was possible - and everybody stands to gain from it.
"Health-related QoL has been possible to measure with established methods for a long time. By using MedTech20 we can now measure everyday QoL as well."
