A new platform for innovation in medical technologies
The new Medical Device Regulation (MDR) requires testing that is costly and may threaten the competitiveness of Europe’s innovation SMEs. The EU-funded MDOT project will develop a series of coordinated procedures to support SMEs to bring testbeds and device innovations to the level of clinical evaluation. The project will enable conformity assessment using a database procedure and access to medical device testing data through a secure and transparent platform. MDOT will perform joint evaluations of commonly used parts and devices and develop advanced testing methods focusing on inhalation technology, neural implants and orthopaedic devices. The project envisages the platform as a meta-network aiming to protect medical technologies’ innovation and economic vigour, limit animal testing and support MDR’s vision of patient safety.
