This paper presents the methodologies and the systematic approaches of human factor ergonomics considerations in designing a Glucose Sensor device. The Glucose Sensor device is a non-invasive version of glucose sensor utilizing NIR (Near Infra-Red Spectroscopy) for medical application that provides diabetes screening as an early symptom in diagnostic. Contextual inquiry (CI) was conducted at the early stage to gather all the users’ inputs and feedback and KJ Analysis was applied to prioritize the voice of customer. Hence, the customer needs could be identified as our design requirements. This study encompasses the ease of use and the usability of the Glucose Sensor device on the two main product features which are thumb module design and LCD placement. Prototypes had been developed to assess the design effectiveness and the discussion will be carried out at the end of this paper.
