Our solutions for medical devices and healthcare equipment
Health care providers use medical devices to diagnose and treat patients and improve patients' quality of life by helping them overcome sickness or disease. Due to the inherent risks when using a device for medical purposes regulating governments conduct thorough testing to ensure the safety and effectiveness before allowing the device to be manufactured.
The FDA's definition includes any “instrument, apparatus, implement, machine, contrivance, implant, in vitro reagent, or another similar or related article, including a component part or accessory” that’s recognised as a pharmaceutical or supplement, intended as diagnoses, cure, or preventive treatment of a disease.
