Slide13:  Core Competencies > Ergonomics Projects Client: Hewlett Packard Product: Notebook Computer Description: IAA conducted several usability tests aimed at optimizing various aspects of the HP notebook computer, including the keyboard tactile feedback, key labels and graphics and pointing devices interaction. The goal was to provide a more comfortable notebook interaction experience and to help reduce repetitive stress injuries (RSIs). Before Slide14:  Core Competencies > Ergonomics Projects Client: Medquest Product: Heart Assist Pump Clothing Description: IAA helped design a more comfortable and distributed garment for holding the various accessories required to operate a heart pump. Previously, patients had to wear a gun-holder like apparatus that was uncomfortable, inflexible and hard to hide under clothing. The new design evenly distributes the weight, allows the patient to place the batteries or controller in a variety of locations and is easily hidden under clothing.
