Find out what consumers actually think!

A large group of comfort bed users were asked for facts about habits and preferences, before we started designing the hand control HC40. Here is what we discovered.

When we started the development of the HC40 hand controls we chose to cooperate with a design agency to do the most extensive user-survey ever conducted in relation to a LINAK product. Several analyses of human behavior were scrutinized, consecutive heat-maps were made and multiple user-tests were conducted. In an extensive survey, two batches of five hundred current and enquiring end users were asked a series of questions regarding everything from income, daily routines and general design preferences, to specific expectations of their next comfort bed. The final result: More than 1,500 pages worth of solid feedback.

We shortened it down to present 7 helpful tips for anyone designing consumer products.
