What is a Medical Device? What’s the difference vs. a medicine?

A medical device is typically a product that works on or inside the human body, delivering either temporary or permanent impact, and is aimed at prevention, diagnosis, monitoring or treatment of diseases. The key difference versus traditional medicines is that a medical device primarily works mechanically as opposed to pharmacologically, i.e. it works alongside or with your body versus affecting chemistry of the human cells. In general medical devices are used for alleviating and treating severe and chronic diseases of the heart, brain, bladder, digestive tract etc. with superior efficacy to traditional treatments using chemical molecules. This is because they typically work directly where your body needs help.
