2010 was a year where significant changes were made to the guidelines and standards that the FDA expects medical products to be developed under, especially in the areas that govern the validation of user interface design. In many ways this is very exciting since the new rules are trying to codify what is essentially "good design process". The concern I would like to raise is that these rules are being developed without input from an organized group specifically representing designers.
