With a clinical evaluation, you as the manufacturer prove the clinical capability of your medical device. In other words: You provide evidence that the product actually delivers the medical benefit you promise in product information material and advertising.A clinical evaluation is based on clinical data from scientific literature and/or from own data acquired in clinical investigations. It is part of the technical documentation and must be presented for the approval of any medical device regardless of its risk class. In the evaluation process, the benefit expected from the application of the medical device according to its intended use is weighed critically against the results from risk analysis, the state of the art, clinical standards, as well as the knowledge collected from scientific publications.
The aim of clinical evaluation
Our aim is not just a one-time set up of your clinical evaluation. We want to put you in the position to keep the documentation of your clinical evaluation up to date in the future across the entire product life cycle with the lowest possible effort in terms of time and personnel.
The aim is always to confirm the clinical efficacy and safety throughout the expected life cycle of the medical device and to verify that the identified risks are justifiable in relation to the clinical benefit.Clinical evaluation is complex and the process requires a considerable amount of time so that it may only be managed by an interdisciplinary team. Commission our experts with parts of the process or the complete package and we will take care that you can concentrate on your core competencies in the meanwhile. Furthermore, we provide you with suitable strategies to keep your documents up to date in the future with little time and personnel efforts.
