About the Committee

The medical devices industry is a global industry at the forefront of medical technology and innovation. A product that is used to treat, cure, diagnose, or affect the structure or function of the human body, but does not function through chemical or metabolic action on the body, then it is a medical device. Medical devices range from simple tongue depressors and bedpans to radiation-emitting apparatuses and laser surgical devices.

This Committee aims to keep its members informed and educated about the corporate, regulatory, intellectual property, product liability, and other legal issues specific to this industry sector.
