3D documentation for the medical device industry: reduce onboarding time and human errors

12 December 2022

Assembling and maintaining medical devices require a high level of precision. The lack of clear documentation may not only result in damaging the devices but worse still affect the outcome of medical procedures. This is why it is critical to provide medical equipment with highly visual and error-free documentation.

The recently published demo samples of the wheelchair documentation, an interactive 3D/2D assembly manual and a parts catalog give you an idea of how the modern documentation for medical devices can look like. The research and practice have proven that the use of 3D manuals significantly reduces the time required for familiarization with even complex procedures and reduces the possibility of human errors. 3D parts catalogs, in their turn, allow you to easily identify desired spare parts and reduce the quantity of wrongly ordered items.

You can start by watching the video that shows how the documentation works and then open interactive documentation to get your own experience.  To find out what authoring software and processes are involved in the creation of such documentation you can request an online demonstration where we will show you the main steps and answer your questions. If you prefer the self-study approach, visit the RapidAuthor page and request its evaluation version.
