The medical device industry is pretty conservative when it comes to materials used in medical devices. That begs the question: Do we need a new FDA approval pathway for biomaterials? Mike Drues thinks the answer is “yes.” “It really will encourage companies to use new materials and not be hamstrung with materials that have been

6 ways hydrogels are enabling medtech innovation

Hydrogels are water-based biomaterials developed specifically for human use, according to a Biomaterials journal article. They are a water-swollen polymeric material that doesn’t change its distinct 3D structure. They are formed from¬†super-absorbent, chain-like polymers and are not soluble in water. However, their porous surface allows for nutrients and cell waste to pass through. They have
