What is a medical device?

Medical devices are health products which have a physical or mechanical effect when used on human bodies. These devices are used to:

  • Diagnose, alleviate or treat a medical condition, e.g. X-ray machines, contact lenses, prosthetic knee implants
  • Measure or monitor functions of the body, e.g. blood pressure or blood sugar monitoring machines

Products used to maintain or support general well-being without specific medical claims, such as body toning equipment, magnetic accessories and massagers, are not medical devices.
