Device Design Considerations

When designing something for the human body there are a number of considerations. Some that we have thought of, others we have not. These are things like how hot does the device get, what sort of wear and tear can it handle, is there a fail-safe, what are consequences of long term exposure to silicon, etc.

Coatings Coatings - various coatings and their properties, use cases, MSDS links, proper ways to apply them


Battery Chemistries Battery Chemistries - various battery chemistries that are noted as low risk due to properties such as thermal runaway, out gassing, and the like


Power Sources Power Sources - various Power Sources other than batteries such as --energy harvesting, super caps, wearable induction, etc


Safety and Fail Safes Safety and Fail Safes - methodologies and equipment for fail safing devices, such as kill switches, GTPI, fuses, appropriate ways to notify the user, software, best practices to avoid infinite loops and borking the device due to bad code pushes


Toxic Materials Toxic Materials - material in common components known to be toxic and ways to mitigate risk when alternatives are not available


Biomechanics and Ergonomics Biomechanics and Ergonomics - reducing the impact on the body. No edges, no corners.
