The team heavily explored the ergonomic layout of the tablet. With the goals of ease of blind use and protecting key switches from accidental activation, the team underwent a series of full size mock up studies. On the body mounting and gloved testing was critical while optional button matrixes were assessed and sent to industry experts for review.
