If your company is planning to introduce a new wireless medical device to the market, don’t forget to design for the whole world – not just the U.S.

The global marker for wireless medical devices has never been hotter.  A 2013 report, from the research conducted by Research and Markets (, projects the market will expand more than 20 percent within a five-year period.  The wireless health market, currently at $23.8 billion, is expected to reach $59.7 billion by 2018, with the growth attributed primarily to patient monitoring applications, diagnostics, aging populations and growing hospital deficits.

Join the U.S. Commercial Service and Dr. Gerard Hayes, President and CEO of the Wireless Research Center of North Carolina, for a webinar designed to help U.S. medical device companies understand the regulations required for entering foreign markets.
