Abstract This study delves into the synergy between medical technology and architectural planning, addressing the pressing need for specialized environments that can facilitate the development and validation of innovative medical devices. The swift evolution of medical technology often surpasses the adaptability of current healthcare infrastructure, hindered by stringent regulations aimed at ensuring public health safety. To bridge this gap, this research introduces a comprehensive architectural plan for a dedicated Medical Technology Experiment Simulator. This simulator replicates various healthcare settings to support rigorous and realistic medical technology experiments. The planning principles for this endeavor revolve around stability, representation, standardization, and adaptability. These principles are derived from thorough analysis of existing simulator usage studies, medical facility design guidelines, and relevant laws and regulations. The specific requirements and performance conditions of those participating in experiments were also taken into account. The proposed architectural plan for this simulator is expected to foster advancements in medical device development, improve healthcare infrastructure, and drive innovation in healthcare through simulation-based training and research. This study lays the groundwork for the future development of efficient and safe medical technology experiment simulators, making a significant contribution to healthcare research.
