Materiovigilance Solutions

Raising the bar for safety.

In the Medical Device industry.

Medical Devices’ numbers increased significantly over the past years, and their diversity and complexity increased equally. Unsurprisingly, this also meant an elevation in the number of Adverse Device Incidents.

As a result, the regulation of Medical Devices also progressed. All over the globe, companies now undertake various measures to provide better patient safety.

The availability of a proactive and comprehensive vigilance system is a must for manufacturers of specific Medical Devices in the EU or US. Furthermore, if the MA holder is also the device component manufacturer, vigilance systems for combination therapies must meet the regulatory requirements of both these components.
