Table of Contents
Executive Summary
Medical devices: Very diverse market and new business models are emerging
Wearable Medical Devices: Segment is seeing significant technological innovation
Neurological Implants: Segment is seeing significant new growth for medical devices
Aging Demographics: A highly important segment for medical devices
Medical Devices: new business models are emerging to suit the changing regulatory environment
Medical devices are extremely diverse and compete in different segments
Class I includes low risk devices such as bandages and stethoscopes
Class II includes moderate risk devices such as wheelchairs
Class III devices include the highest risk devices, such as pacemakers or implants
US and EU regulatory pathways are only similar on the surface
Concerning cases of defective and dangerous medical devices have surfaced, leading to questions over regulation
FDA device regulations have been inadequate for a number of years
Competitors starting to move in on Medtronic over next decade
Constricted healthcare budgets mean players have to plan carefully
Blockbuster treatment areas are now becoming quite crowded
The medical device industry is changing, and players need to adapt
New business to consumer models are popular at present
Future business models might involve a "mega play" across the value chain
Amazon might soon become a significant competitor in healthcare
Growth of the Chinese medical device market is significant but western players are less welcome
Wearable Medical Devices: Segment is seeing significant technological innovation
Apple Watch and Apple Health App are strong market offerings acting as potential substitutes
Other companies can piggy-back on good wearable devices
Global levels of diabetes are expected to rise, providing a huge opportunity for medical device manufacturers
Guardian Connect from Medtronic is part of a new wave of wearable diabetes devices
Insulin pumps offer an advanced level of diabetes treatment
Remote monitoring becoming the new industry goal
Kardia Band from AliveCor is another device using wearables, but with a subscription business model
Remote monitoring can lead to patient disengagement
Simplicity could be a route to faster regulatory approval
Regulation for wearables has been obsolete for a number of years
The FDA itself is aware of this problem and is taking steps to improve the process
Neurological Implants: Segment is seeing significant new growth for medical devices
Assisting brains that need repair is a key aim of neural implants and BCIs
Cochlear implants are very common place, non-invasive and can restore senses
Deep brain stimulation can alleviate the symptoms of Parkinson's disease
Retinal implant technology is allowing the blind to see again through a bionic eye
Treatment of spinal injuries to allow patients with paraplegia to move again
Microfibers are becoming more advanced and this is opening up new possibilities
The next step for BCIs is human enhancement
DARPA has been working on this field for a number of years for defense purposes
Kernel is looking to find ways to improve human intelligence and cure disease
Neuralink is planning to create an AI interface between the brain and computers
Even successful programs have shown that side effects can be severe
Aging Demographics: A highly important segment for medical devices
New alert technology allows elderly people to stay at home, keeping many out of care systems
Internet of things is changing how care is delivered to an aging population
New medical devices coming to the market include bespoke artificial limbs
New generation of smart pacemakers could be susceptible to hacking
Nascent technology can radically improve the mobility of an aging population, creating new business
Toyota's Mobility Challenge means better solutions to lower limb paralysis are coming
Mobility presents growing business opportunities for innovation
Remotely taking doctors into homes: technology streamlines treatment of elderly patients
Communication technology designed for over 65 year olds is a growth industry
Many of the latest devices are perfect for seniors, but not marketed as such
