Diners, Devices, And Dives
Diners, Devices, And Dives

We are often drawn to bright, shiny objects of some sort. This holds true for the medical device industry as well. The top four economic areas in the U.S. for medical device employment in 2015 were Los Angeles, New York City, Boston, and Minneapolis. As I look at my home state of Pennsylvania, I see a microcosm of the national paradigm.

    Hammering Home A Solution For The Opioid Crisis

    Have you ever accidently struck your thumb or finger with a hammer? What was your immediate reaction? I mean after the few choice expletives! Most, if not all of us, will grab and rub the impacted appendage. Why do we do this, and what does this have to do with a potential solution for the opioid crisis?

  • MDSAP And Its Implications For Device Makers
    MDSAP And Its Implications For Device Makers

    Manufacturers selling their products in multiple countries must comply with regulations in each country, which can be a complex and time-consuming process. Regulatory variations from country to country means different audits and processes are required. This article will help you navigate through those issues.

  • The Taiwanese Bone Graft Substitute Market: A Small, But Profitable Target
    The Taiwanese Bone Graft Substitute Market: A Small, But Profitable Target

    With less than 25 million residents, Taiwan flies under the radar of many medical device manufacturers. However, the low penetration rate of bone graft substitutes and a rapidly aging population, make Taiwan a potentially lucrative target for orthopedic biomaterial manufacturers considering expansion in the Asia Pacific region.
