Recruiting participants for studies

THAY Medical have expertise and experience when it comes to recruiting participants for human factors or usability tests, patient handling studies and user research activities. We have in-house capabilities to recruit people into studies in a safe manner, so that each participant receives a positive experience in their test session.

We are currently able to recruit participants in the following countries:

  • Austria
  • Australia
  • Belgium
  • Germany
  • Ireland
  • Holland
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland
  • UK (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland)
  • USA

Our lead times for recruiting participants for studies are small. Typically, we can perform studies with only a 2 week recruitment period in some cases – it is all dependent on the sample size required. Our studies currently require from 5 to 150 participants, depending on the compliance levels required. We recruit for:

  • Formative Human Factors / Usability tests
  • Summative Human Factors / Usability tests
  • Comparative medical device Usability tests
  • Ethnographic studies
  • User / Medical market research
  • Focus Groups
  • Post Market Clinical Feedback
  • Patient Handling studies

We recruit many types of participants for studies. All types of healthcare professionals, most types of patients and all types of lay users. We recruit in a safe and ethical manner. For some studies where vulnerable people are required, we may have to gain ethical approvals, which we do efficiently. For all studies, we evaluate the ethical requirements and where required, provide justifications to regulators. We have a duty of care to all people recruited for studies. We always look after participants in studies – from the point they are contacted to the point their participation is complete.We receive a lot of positive feedback from participants on how we perform studies and their involvement. Safety is essential. A positive participant experience is also essential. More details on who we can recruit are below:
