Medical devices are used by many in order to improve their quality of life. However, if a medical product is faulty or defective it can place the patient at a serious risk of injury, illness and, in some cases, may even be fatal.
What is a medical device?
A medical device is used by a patient in order to help with the treatment of an illness or disability or to aid in its diagnosis. Medical devices can help to ease pain and suffering, increase the quality of life of a patient and may even prolong life expectancy.
Medical devices include:
- Replacement hip joints
- Hearing aids
- Intrauterine Devices (IUD)
What are the risks associated with a faulty medical device?
Medical devices are subject to strict and rigorous testing, which means that in the vast majority of cases the devices function as designed. In the rare event that a medical device does fail, it can cause a severe impediment to the patient. This can manifest itself in a number of ways such as; loss of vision, reduced mobility and loss of hearing.
The impact of this is that a patient will be placed under a significant amount of stress and may need to take time off work. This can result in a loss of earning and pension rights, which may cause even more stress for the patient. That’s where we come in.
