“Those involved in developing medical equipment may have no practical experience of working in hospitals. As a result, they may have no idea of the sort of situations, circumstances and customers the equipment will be used with, or in which ways the device instructions can be interpreted. In fact, it is common that you have to readjust medical equipment due to deficiencies or problems detected in the testing or implementation stage”
