Medical Devices for Drug Delivery

A medical device is any instrument, apparatus, appliance, software, material or other article, whether used alone or in combination, including the software intended by its manufacturer to be used specifically for diagnostic and/or therapeutic purposes and necessary for its proper application, intended by the manufacturer to be used for human beings for the purpose of:

·         Diagnosis, prevention, monitoring, treatment or alleviation of disease;

·         Diagnosis, monitoring, treatment, alleviation of or compensation for an injury or handicap;

·         Investigation, replacement or modification of the anatomy or of a physiological process;

Medical devices vary according to their intended use and indications. Examples range from simple devices such as tongue depressors, medical thermometers, and disposable gloves to advanced devices such as computers which assist in the conduct of medical testing, implants, and prostheses. The design of medical devices constitutes a major segment of the field of mechanical engineering. Pharmaceutica 2017 is considered to be a medical devices conference.

The drug-device combination market is not fragmented and the key players in this market are Medtronic, Boston Scientific Corp., Edwards Life sciences Corp., Stryker Corp., QLT Inc. etc. The maximum number of new product developments is expected to take place in the bone graft substitutes, advanced wound care products and antimicrobial catheter markets. Our patent analysis indicates that E.U. has filed for the maximum number of patents followed by the U.S.
