1. Introduction
Medical devices are those products that are used for medical examination, surgery or
treatment of patients. These devices include surgical, diagnostic & imaging, ophthalmic,
laboratory, and dental instruments. These also include X-ray apparatus, medical supplies
such as bandages, and disposables such as syringes, needles and catheters.
Surgical Equipments and Appliances: Surgical and appliances are specially designed for
performing specific actions during a surgery. These devices include anesthetic apparatus &
instruments, blood-pressure measuring instruments, blood transfusion apparatus, artificial
joints, orthopedic appliances, splints, and other fracture appliances. In addition, the surgical
devices also include artificial joints, heart pacemakers, other artificial parts of the body
(excluding artificial teeth and dental fittings), hearing aids accessories, and kidney dialysis
equipments. Further, smaller regular devices include graspers, clamps, occluders,
retractors, distractors, mechanical cutters, dilators, and measurement devices (such as
rulers and calipers, etc).
Diagnostic and Imaging Devices: Diagnostic devices include Electro-diagnostic and
monitoring equipments such as Electrocardiogram (ECG), Computed Tomography (CT),
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI); Diathermic apparatus; and Imaging devices including
X-ray Equipments, Ultrasound, and Endoscopes.
Ophthalmic     Equipments: Ophthalmic equipments are specialized and used by
ophthalmologists and optometrists to observe and photograph the retina. It helps in
determining the refractive errors of the eye; curvature of the cornea; and ascertains small
regions of the cornea that might be opaque or scatter light. These devices include
retinoscope, optometer, keratometer, campimeter, slit lamp, and corneal microscope. This
segment also includes lenses and other optical & non-optical ophthalmic equipment .
Laboratory Devices and Diagnostics: Laboratory devices are used to conduct medical
tests on samples of tissues or body fluids. These devices include diagnostic laboratory
devices comprising laboratory centrifuge, laboratory microscopes, laboratory autoclaves,
laboratory consumables, laboratory incubator, laboratory mixers, laboratory water bath,
diffraction apparatus, sterilizers, and reagents for determining blood groups or blood
factors.
Dental Equipments: Dental equipments include dental drill engines, dental instruments
and appliances, artificial teeth of plastics & materials other than plastics, and dental fittings.
Medical Disposables: Medical disposables are common articles used during medical
practices, which include wound care/ closure devices, surgical gloves, syringes, needles,
catheters, cotton, sealants, glues, sutures, staples, anti-adhesion, and tapes
