By directly observing the use of products in the healthcare environment and involving the end-users of medical and dental technology in systematic evaluations, TDICT has developed a system for promoting safer medical devices. Fundamental to TDICT's work is the notion that end-users of medical devices should be involved in all stages of product development and selection. Our process includes:
In addition, TDICT works with Stanford University's School of Engineering and the University of California at Berkeley's School of Public Health to introduce students to healthcare worker health and safety. We also offer internships for both product design and industrial hygiene students interested in the medical device industry.
