Over 400,000 types of medical devices are in use each day. Each one is designed to provide better health care but is also a potentially harmful weapon. Unsafe medical devices can cause harm to the health of individuals, so it is important that the innovation which prompts their design should be controlled to ensure safety. This book analyses the regulation of medical devices at the federal level in the United States and in the European Union.
