@richardst Thanks for bringing that up. One of the critical FDA guidelines is that the system should be designed in such a way that even though the software can, and likely will eventually, go haywire, electrical and mechanical safeguards must be in place to protect the patient. If that is done very well, the quality of the software can be lower and yet the user can be safe.
