Given the current climate, home-use medical devices have become increasingly important, which is reflected in their unprecedented market growth this past year. Home-use medical devices offer users the ability to monitor their health and seek early treatment for serious illness. But what happens when a product that is created for use by medical professionals is converted into a home-use device for patients?
In this webinar, attorneys William Judge and Nicole Walsh of Hill Ward Henderson will discuss:
- History of medical devices for in-home use,
- Instructions for use (IFUs) for in-home medical devices,
- Recent changes in case law; and
- The future of in-home medical devices.
