of critical observational use tasks were completed correctly1

of participants reported no difficulty understanding or following Instructions for Use1

60 participants (30 patients with heart failure, 15 caregivers, and 15 healthcare professionals) were recruited and completed the study. Of the 30 patients, 15 were trained and 15 were untrained. All other participants were untrained.1

*

Trained participants attended a walk-through of the Instructions for Use conducted by healthcare professionals. Participants performed all tasks the following day. Patients were representative of the intended user population in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, and education. Untrained participants attended a single study session where they were given as much time as needed to familiarize themselves with the On-Body Infusor and Instructions for Use. No education or training was provided.
