Product Safety Software

Embedded Software that Enables Product Safety

Designers of medical devices have many issues to consider than the developers of other types of equipment. The devices are often complex, must be used by a variety of users (possibly including the patient), have complex communication requirements, and must safeguard patient confidential data. While the primary consideration is safety, the device must also achieve its therapeutic goals while minimizing danger to the patient and those who interact with the device. These safety considerations are more in-depth than most “safe” devices for industry since the graphics to give the providers the information they need are complex, and the consequences of issues may be fatal. So governments have built up regulatory infrastructure (such as within the Food and Drug Administration in the United States) that will review and approve the device before it may be marketed and used for its intended purpose.
