 Advancing Healthcare Through Innovative Technologies and Device



  

Everyday, medical device advancements help save the lives of patients in Canada by improving the accuracy of diagnoses, enhancing treatments and cure of diseases, reducing long-term disabilities and helping to provide better medical care. Covering a wide range of products, medical device examples include pacemakers, artificial heart valves, hip implants, synthetic skin, scalpels, medical laboratory diagnostic instruments and test kits for diagnosis. Software, either stand alone sold for the purposes given in the definition of a device (Patient Management Software) or used as a component to a device, is included in the term "medical device".

Medical Devices are defined in the Food and Drugs Act (the "Act") and the Medical Devices Regulations. For more information, click here.
