Topic Background:

The FDA regulates medical devices marketed and sold in the U.S. on the basis of potential risk and according to a 3 category classification system. Class I medical devices are deemed low risk and possess the lowest regulatory threshold for entry into the market. Class II medical devices are deemed to pose an intermediate risk to the user and require the submission of a 510(k) Premarket Notification establishing substantial equivalence to a selected predicate device. Finally, Class III devices are considered novel and unique, and/or deemed high level requiring Premarket Approval prior to marketing and sale.
