Advances in medical devices have had a clear impact on the level and quality of healthcare provided worldwide, as well as on patients’ quality of life and life expectancy. A wide range of medical devices have been developed in past decades, creating a growing global market of €310 billion (2013). Medical devices involve several configurations and features, and their classification and regulatory pathways can be complex, varying from country to country. This highlights the growing need for a consensus regarding medical device regulation. This article provides a simple overview and a practical tool for researchers and manufacturers of implantable medical devices. The definition, classification, technical requirements, conformity assessment, and postmarket surveillance underlying medical devices approval, as well as the future of their regulation, are addressed herein.
