Global Markets for Wireless Medical Devices Webinar

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 market for wireless medical devices has never been hotter. A 2013 report, from research conducted by Research and Markets (www.researchandmarkets.com) 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. Department of Commerce - 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.
