Medical Devices

More than 80,000 brands and models of medical devices are produced for the U.S. market, ranging from contact lenses and blood sugar monitors to implanted hip joints and heart valves, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Medical devices save, extend or improve the lives of millions of Americans. Yet, every year, biomedical technology companies and medical device manufacturers are accused of producing and distributing dangerous or defective medical devices.
