Theranostic implants

Dear Sir or Madam,

Anyone wearing an insulin pump has a so-called active implant. Also called theranostic implants, because diagnosis and therapy come together here, they will be available to many more patients in the future. We have been informed about this exciting topic at the Fraunhofer IMS in Duisburg (Germany). See more in the video.

Have a nice week!

The new European Union Medical Device Regulation

Since May 25, 2017, the EU’s Medical Device Regulation (MDR) has repealed the previous Medical Devices Directive [93/42/EEC] (MDD) and Active Implantable Medical Devices Directive [90/385/EEC] (AIMD). At the end of the three-year transition period, the new Regulation will fully come into force on May 26, 2020. At that point, all medical devices must be recertified to meet the requirements of the MDR.
