Abstract

This research investigates how prototype format, here defined as the physical nature of a prototype, influences feedback from stakeholders in the process of designing a medical device. We presented medical practitioners with a variety of prototypes, including a sketch, a cardboard mock-up, a CAD model and a 3D printed model, of the same idea for an assistive, contraceptive implant insertion device and asked for their feedback. We found that the prototype format influenced the distribution within the answer categories. We also found that the type of question influenced the distribution within the answer categories.
