Usability is an increasingly important factor within the field of healthcare and medical devicedevelopment. One of the main issues with the usability of medical devices is their complex nature. Therefore, it is vital that comprehensive and clear instructions are provided to aid in the operation of these devices. While paper-based instructions are commonly provided, they have many disadvantages which can be addressed by interactive digital instructions. Moreover, in an era of pervasive computing, it is important to provide these instructions at the point of need. This can be done using a Quick Response code and a smartphone which allows for interactive instructions to be instantly accessible. This paper presents a case study and a working prototype to test the utility of interactive medical device instructions accessed by a QR code attached to the medical device.
