Medical devices play a huge role in many different healthcare settings. They are crucial in patient treatment and diagnostics, and they cover a wide range of instruments – from prostheses to drug delivery pumps.
Although medical devices are immensely diverse, they still require some common areas of expertise. For example, risk assessment is needed when improving the design of products and equipment; world class production and troubleshooting skills are critical in the development process; efficient workflows demand production layouts with different classification areas; and medical device production needs to be validated for cost-effective GMP compliance.
Medical devices cover single-use products such as catheters, cannulae and IV bags as well as infusion and transfusion sets. Other examples are medical dialysers, syringes, injection systems and inhalers, electro-medicine equipment such as diagnostic and monitoring instruments, as well as intra-wound care products and stent implants for ostomy care.
Growth and development characterise the industry – short product life cycles with continuous improvements based on new science, technology and materials.
