"... interesting, well-written, and achieves the goal of raising the reader's awareness of important design issues. I loved the book and now that I've told my colleagues they want to read it as well, so we'll buy one for our library since I'm not giving up my copy! Although it is not intended to provide specific solutions to design problems, even a reader with experience in equipment design will most definitely gain new insights into the man-machine interface of medical devices."
- Jonathan A Gaev, Biomedical Engineering Online

"... the chapters go far beyond the design process guidance of AAMI's ANSI standard. It provides expanded discussions of design issues, presents product design case studies, and gives supporting illustrations. ... Readers are given a particularly nice treat near the end of this voluminous handbook in the form of a set of photos and short bio sketches about the three editors and the 22 contributors."
-Gerald P. Krueger, ergonomics in design, July 2013
