Medical device manufacturing and design is a complex process as the products not only need to be precise and user-friendly but also meet the medical industry’s regulatory requirements and deliver their intended functionality.

Medical device manufacturers also need to follow design control guidelines set by local regulatory bodies.

Medical device manufacturing

Medical device manufacturing comprises instruments, implants and equipment for monitoring, therapeutics, and diagnostics. These include implantable monitors for cardiac and diabetic assistance, as well as reconstructive devices such as hip and knee replacements.

Some of the segments covered under medical device manufacturing include:

  • Orthopaedics
  • Surgical instruments and technologies
  • Cardiovascular devices
  • Diagnostic apparatus
  • Dental devices and technologies
  • Diabetes devices

Other device segments include catheters, blood transfusion and intravenous equipment, internal fixation devices, neuromodulation devices, spinal devices, syringes and hypodermic needles, and urology devices.

Medical simulation software

Medical simulation software, also known as healthcare simulation software, is used for evaluating, educating and training in several medical departments. Healthcare simulations can take place virtually. Some simulation programmes use mannequins to enable healthcare professionals and students to gain practical knowledge, while some use imitations of a healthcare or emergency setting.

Medical simulation software allows healthcare professionals to keep pace with changing healthcare guidelines, evolving medical technologies, and standards and procedures.

Some common types of simulation include environmental management system (EMS) simulators, mannequin simulators, simulated medications, simulation recording systems, part-task simulators, computer-based virtual medical simulation, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) in medicine.
