The process of innovation in the design of medical devices is complex. The analysis of the user, the disease stage of the patient and the fact that all clinical histories are different generates a series of variables that are a challenge for any Medical Device designer. The traditional industrial design uses frameworks to control information and visualize future scenarios to understand the user experience; this allows the designer to anticipate behaviour and design the object according to the needs of the users. Industrial design framework and medical device design framework differ significantly since the design of medical devices requires the analysis of multi-frameworks for a single object. This generates a very complex brief for any designer. This theoretical work argues that prior knowledge of the multi-framework in the design process of medical devices might help the designer to visualize the spectrum of the problem and focuses its efforts on reducing frames.
