Core helps companies research and develop their products.

Core has the knowledge and expertise to apply "the human factor" to the products you develop. The advantage is that the design of your products precisely fit the physical and cognitive characteristics of your users. 

Successful product development requires a balance of usability, usefulness, and desirability. Core's human factors methodologies uniquely address this balance. Core has vast experience with consumer, industrial, and healthcare-related products. The latter, in particular, requires an exceptional amount of risk management for regulatory compliance and liability control, all of which Core can successfully accomplish.


Core provides a full suite of services customized to each client and project.
