Medical devices play a crucial role in modern healthcare, aiding in diagnosis, treatment, and patient care. However, the complex nature of these devices imposes regulations that companies in this sector must follow to ensure safety and quality. These regulations include a comprehensive framework of laws, standards, and guidelines that govern medical device development, manufacturing, distribution, and use.
