1. “A medical device is a product which is used for medical purposes in patients, in diagnosis, therapy or surgery. Whereas medicinal products (also called pharmaceuticals) achieve their principal action by pharmacological, metabolic or immunological means.  Medical devices act by other means like physical, mechanical, thermal, physico-chemical or chemical means.”

They may be external or implants.  (RDC 12/29/2011)

“Medical devices include a wide range of products varying in complexity and application. Examples include tongue depressors, medical thermometers, and blood sugar meters.”

“The global market of medical devices reached roughly 209 billion US Dollar in 2006 and is expected to grow with an average annual rate of 6 - 9% through 2010”
