The Design and Manufacture of Medical Devices (Woodhead Publishing Reviews: Mechanical Engineering)


The Design and Manufacture of Medical Devices (Woodhead Publishing Reviews: Mechanical Engineering) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Medical devices are included in the fields of medical and health technology and encompass a wide range of health care products. Today, it is difficult to obtain an exact definition of "medical device." Directive 2007/47/EC, for example, defines a medical device as, "any instrument, apparatus, appliance, software, material or other article, whether used alone or in combination, including the software intended by its manufacturer to be used specifically for diagnostic and/or therapeutic purposes and necessary for its proper application, intended by the manufacturer to be used for human beings."

This book provides information on the design and manufacture of medical devices with an emphasis on research and development. the contributors discuss cardiovascular devices, prosthetic devices, medical ultrasound equipment and surgical and dental cutting tools.
