Description

Medical devices are crucial for the wellbeing of many Americans. They can be as life-sustaining as cardiac pacemakers or as simple as wooden tongue depressors. Regardless of their complexity, all medical devices must go through a clearance process by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) before they are cleared for market. While the vast majority of these devices are safe and effective, according to the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO), hundreds are recalled every year. And the impact of an unsafe medical device can be devastating.
