November 2017 issue: Medical Device Handbook 2017 + more


Why the Medical Device Handbook matters

Medical device suppliers are way beyond the times when they merely filled orders to spec for medtech OEMs. From incorporating steerability into catheters to getting validation and testing done right, the companies serving the medical device industry have become specialized experts.

Through our annual Medical Device Handbook, we seek to harness this expertise for the medical device industry. We requested articles from medical device designers, outsourcers and consultants that avoided marketing pitches and instead provided useful information for our community.

Whether medical device developers are new to, say, catheters, electronic components or rapid manufacturing, the nearly 50 articles in this issue should hopefully help them dip their toes into these areas.

Here are just a few examples of the expertise to be had in this year’s Medical Device Handbook:
