1 The European Medical Technology Industry in Figures

2 What is Medical Technology? Medical technology is a collective noun for medical devices, in vitro diagnostics, medical imaging equipment and e-health solutions. Billions of patients worldwide depend on medical technology at home, at the doctor s, at hospital and nursing homes. Wheelchairs, pacemakers, blood-glucose monitors, orthopaedic shoes, spectacles and contact lenses, insulin pens, hip prostheses, condoms, oxygen masks, HIV-tests, dental floss, MRI scanners, pregnancy tests, surgical instruments, bandages, syringes, life-supporting machines: more than 500,000 products (20,000 generic groups) are available today. Medical technology is used to ensure health in individuals suffering from a wide range of conditions. It extends life and brings healthy life years, reduces symptoms and prevents disease progression, thus playing an essential role in healthcare. Good health is a prerequisite for well-being and economic prosperity. Medical technology helps people live healthier, more productive, social active, independent lives and reinforces employability. Moreover, continuous medical technology innovation enhances the quality and effectiveness of care. In doing so, it contributes to steering healthcare onto a sustainable path. Diversity of Medical Technology High risk Class III Class IIB Class IIA Class I Low risk 2

3 The European Medical Technology Industry in Figures Despite this high diversity, the MedTech industry s common goal is to develop medical technology of the highest quality and offering the greatest benefit to patients. Products need to meet stringent quality criteria and their clinical performance is evaluated to ensure they work as designed. Moreover, each technology comes with strict instructions for use and industry continuously invests in hands-on training for physicians. At the same time, clinical investigations comprised of thousands of patients, and interviews with physicians and patients help the medical technology industry to improve its products ever more. Also, after a product has been made available to patient industry has a permanent monitoring system (vigilance) in place to ensure that any serious adverse event can be addressed quickly and appropriately. There are more than 500,000 technologies, in 20,000 generic groups. These fall within 16 categories of products, as determined by the Global Medical Devices Nomenclature (GMDN) Agency. 1 Code Classification Example 01 Active implantable technology Cardiac pacemakers, neurostimulators 02 Anaesthetic and respiratory technology Oxygen mask, gas delivery unit, anaesthesia breathing circuit 03 Dental technology Dentistry tools, alloys, resins, floss, brushes 04 Electromechanical medical technology X-ray machine, laser, scanner 05 Hospital hardware Hospital bed 06 In vitro diagnostic technology Pregnancy test, genetic test, glucose strip 07 Non-active implantable technology Hip or knee joint replacement, cardiac stent 08 Ophthalmic and optical technology Spectacles, contact lenses, intraocular lenses, ophthalmoscope 09 Reusable instruments Surgical instruments, rigid endoscopes, blood pressure cuffs, stethoscopes, skin electrodes 10 Single use technology Syringes, needles, latex gloves, balloon catheters 11 Technical aids for disabled Wheelchairs, walking frames, hearing aids 12 Diagnostic and therapeutic radiation Radiotherapy units technology 13 Complementary therapy devices Acupuncture needles/devices, bio-energy mapping systems/software, magnets, moxibustion devices, suction cups 14 Biological-derived devices Biological heart valves 15 Healthcare facility products and Gas delivery systems adaptations 16 Laboratory equipment Most IVD which are not reagents 3

4 Innovation Medical technology is characterised by a constant flow of innovations, which are the result of a high level of research and development within the industry, and of close cooperation with the users. Products typically have a lifecycle of only months before an improved product becomes available. In 2012, more than 10,000 patent applications were filed with the European Patent Office (EPO) in the field of medical technology equivalent to 7 % of the total number of applications more than any other technical field. 38% of these patent applications were filed from European countries. In comparison, around 5,400 applications were filed in the pharmaceutical field and 5,300 in the field of biotechnology. While over the last decade the number of EPO filings in the field of medical technology has doubled, biotech and pharma patent applications were relatively stagnant. 2 Top technical fields in patent applications.

11 About MedTech Europe MedTech Europe is an Alliance of European medical technology industry associations. The Alliance was founded in October 2012 and currently has two members being EDMA, representing the European in vitro diagnostic industry, and Eucomed, representing the European medical devices industry. The Alliance was established to represent the common policy interests of its members more effectively and efficiently. Its mission is to make value-based, innovative medical technology available to more people, while supporting the transformation of healthcare systems onto a sustainable path. As such, the medical devices and in vitro diagnostics industries are jointly executing their industry strategy. In 2012 MedTech Europe published the Contract for a Healthy Future, the medtech industry s 5-year strategy, and Creating Value in European Healthcare. Contract for a Healthy Future details the role of Europe s medical technology industry in steering healthcare systems onto a sustainable path, while the Creating Value in European Healthcare - publication explains how Europe's medical technology industry is delivering on the promise of the Contract. Both publications are available at
