As per the report published by Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) says that the Indian Medical Devices industry is valued at US$ 2.5 billion. Moreover, it is growing at a faster annual rate of 15%. A rise in the number of hospitals and the increased requirement for healthcare facilities creates a need for sophisticated devices and equipment, which can provide accurate treatment to individuals. The medical electronics segment of this industry incorporates control, conversion, sensing, processing, storage, display, and transfer of information on anatomy and physiology by making use of the Electronics and Communication Technologies. Developing an innovative medical product which can get regulatory approval is time and resource intensive. Designers can optimize the time and resource in product development by taking care of the standards (ex.IEC 60601-1) and implementing design rules for medical electronics. Commercialization of the medical device which starts from the design itself.

Key takeaways:

  • Medical device manufacturing process, prototyping processes and hurdles.
  • Medical device approval and new guidelines.
  • Commercialization of the devices, different models for it.
