What is Medical Device Testing?
Medical device safety testing consists of a series of specific tests which are performed to certify that a product will not suffer from interference in the applicable medical environment and will prevent unacceptable risks to patients.
The manufacturer also performs a risk assessment and submits that assessment to the test laboratory in the form of a risk management document. This document provides evidence that a manufacturer has considered all potential hazards and mitigated associated risks to the highest degree possible.
The general medical device safety testing requirements for most electronic medical devices can be found inside the IEC 60601 standard family.
