Devices critical in the prevention, diagnosis or treatment of illness or disease, or for detecting, measuring, restoring, correcting, or modifying the structure or function of the body for some health purpose are commonly known as medical devices.
The United States holds a competitive advantage in the medical device industries, including microelectronics, telecommunications, instrumentation, biotechnology, and software development. Collaborations have led to innovative advances including neuro-stimulators, stent technologies, biomarkers, robotic assistance, and implantable electronic devices. Since these development fuels the medical device sector, the pursuit for identifying better ways to treat and diagnose medical conditions sits heavily with teaching universities and entrepreneurs. With new technology and treatments emerging every day patient life expectancy will continue to increase and our aging populations will continue to grow globally, demanding growth from the medical device sector.
