Why are Clinical Studies necessary?

  • Medical devices as defined in the medical device directive MDD 93/42/EEC must comply with the essential requirements concerning the characteristics and performances under the normal conditions of use of medical devices, the evaluation of the side-effects and the acceptability of the benefit/risk ratio defined in the relevant directives of the European Community. The confirmation of the required conformity has to be based on clinical data. One option for obtaining those data is to perform a clinical study to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of the medical device by monitoring its effects on large groups of humans.
