INDUSTRIES WE SERVE
MedTech, also known as medical technology or medical device industry, is one of the biggest industries today when it comes to innovation and demand. The MedTech industry involves anything and everything to do with device development used in medical settings. A vast-growing field, MedTech is constantly improving ad advancing, requiring quick-to-adapt precision measurement tools. The exactness of measurement within the technologies developed in medicine is vital, for how well they work directly relates to how many lives can be saved.
According to the World Health Organization, a device with a medical context can be defined as “an article, instrument, apparatus or machine that is used in the prevention, diagnosis or treatment of illness or disease, or for detecting, measuring, restoring, correcting or modifying the structure or function of the body for some health purpose.” MedTech devices are typically categorized by field of use and often include: orthopedic instruments, surgical instruments, diagnostic instruments, dental instruments, stents and catheters, syringes and hypodermic needles, blood transfusion and IV equipment, and other.
Devices produced and used in the United States are regulated by a subdivision of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Having a regulatory authority over the MedTech industry assures that the devices used to diagnose and treat the population are well-made and follow the necessary requirements. Precision measurement plays a distinguished role in the production of MedTech devices. For example, a surgical tool must be cut and shaped with the utmost precision, for it is used to complete life-altering precise actions. Knowing that the development of the MedTech devices used to care for our loved ones is done using the highest quality precision measurement tools is a huge comfort. With constant advances in technology impacting the MedTech industry, precision measurement tools stand as a strong foundation on which all else is created.
