Note that the development process for medical devices is very different from that for drugs. , 2010). Magnitude of the Field The magnitude of the medical device field expresses both the magnitude of the need and a sizeable commercial market (Table 2). Consider four commonly used biomaterial devices: a contact lens; a hip joint; a hydrocephalous drainage shunt; and a heart valve. Let’s examine these devices in the contexts of human needs and commercial markets. The contact lens offers improved vision and, some will argue, a cosmetic enhancement.
