Medical devices entail any type of equipment or tool utilized by the medical field. Such equipment is designed, created, and manufactured by experts in the biomedical engineering industry. Each tool or machinery used in medicine, no matter how simple or complex, is categorized as a medical device. Something as simple as a tongue depressor, for instance, is included in this category, as well as more technologically complex machinery, such as a CAT scan or MRI machine.
Medical related lawsuits may result from faulty medical devices, so it is important to utilize a medical device expert with a background in the specific machinery if a court case were to occur. Whether it’s a defibrillator, infusion pump, mesh, surgical implant, prosthetic, da Vinci robot, or other type of equipment or machinery, medical device safety is very important. In addition to engineering experience, biomedical engineers should also be knowledgeable in the area of medicine for which they are designing medical devices.
