Dangerous Medical Devices Often Untested by the FDA
Dangerous Medical Devices – Untested by the FDA – Are No Laughing Matter
Comedian John Oliver tackles a touchy subject – defective medical devices. The truth is many devices are not “FDA Tested” but instead are “FDA Cleared.” This is a much easier status to reach, by coming to market with a medical device you claim is “substantially similar” to an existing medical device on the market.
The problem, of course, is when the devices are not tested, and one untested device is similar to another untested device, etc. While medical devices are important for society, poorly built and designed devices, with no rigorous testing, put us all at risk.
