New York, US (PRWEB) July 19, 2012

The primary reason for translating packaging for medical devices and diagnostics to be sold overseas is to ensure that the products can be used safely and as intended. Many medical devices and diagnostics businesses are now embarking upon translation projects to take advantage of the huge demand in regions such as Asia, South America and Africa.

Datamonitor predicts that by 2015, the global healthcare equipment and supplies market will be worth $ 370.7 billion, which is up 13.4 percent from the industrys value in 2010. Although the US still accounts for 45 percent of this market, there are several growing markets in emerging economies such as the BRIC nations and Africa. Therefore, it makes economic sense for healthcare and medical device firms to carefully translate the packaging and documentation of their products to a range of languages whether it is Portuguese, French, Cantonese or Hindi.

Proper translation is a vital part of the process of bringing medical products into foreign markets. Whether it is a consumer buying a device such as a hearing aid, a nurse administering an infusion pump or a surgeon implanting a stent, they preferably need to be able to read the packaging and directions in their own language. Medical device firms cannot afford mistakes in terminology in the translation process and the same can be said for medical diagnostics companies. Accurate translation is essential and cannot be compromised.

Medical device firms entering new markets do find that they are faced with growing regulatory pressures and this is where working with a qualified language services provider can help. The US Food and Drug Administration is keen to stress the importance of accurate and high-quality translation of medical device packaging. It states that medical device firms should work on, establishing and maintaining design transfer procedures that insure that the package design is correctly translated into production specifications.

It also asserts that manufacturers of other Class I devices should establish and maintain procedures for ensuring that their device design is correctly translated into production specifications.

In light of the regulatory demands and the pressure to constantly accelerate time-to-market for medical devices and diagnostics products, working with a language services provider with expertise in the medical device field can help. Translating medical device and diagnostics packaging is a high-risk activity that requires a huge level of expertise and experience to ensure best practice is observed. With short product-development cycles and increasing time pressures, medical technologies manufacturers cant risk putting speed above quality. Inaccurate and faulty translation could lead to expensive product recalls or liability cases.

Working with a qualified language service provider that holds internationally recognized quality standards, including ISO 13485:2003 and 14971:2007 certifications, is an effective way to reduce exposure when embarking upon a medical device, diagnostics and related services translation project. Merrill Brinks medical devices and diagnostics translation services offer a world-class, end-to-end solution that ensures medical device firms can get their products to new markets accurately and within budget.

They have linguists with expertise in diverse subjects such as vision care, orthopaedics, neurology, urology, vascular surgery and cardiology – equipping them with the background knowledge necessary to produce accurate translations of even the most complex and technical medical terminology.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 15, 2012

The Medical Device Manufacturing industry has enjoyed strong revenue growth recently and is forecast to continue expanding in the years ahead. Since 2007, revenue increased at an average annual rate of 12.8%, and sales are expected to grow 7.4% in 2012 alone, to $ 64.7 billion. The US economic downturn did little to deter hospitals and other customers from purchasing medical devices, according to IBISWorld industry analyst Nima Samadi. In fact, more industry companies gained sales in 2008 and 2009 than lost them. The aging US population is a major factor driving demand, as the occurrence of health issues that require medical devices is higher in the elderly population. This demographic is forecast to expand further as a percentage of the total population during the five years to 2017, which will help maintain industry growth.

But revenue in the Medical Device Manufacturing industry will not grow as quickly over the five years to 2017. The changing regulatory environment will be the main hindrance, Samadi said. For example, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 will place an excise tax on medical devices, eating into revenue and reducing profit. Also, potential reform to the approval process for new devices will likely hamper innovation and encourage more companies to shift functions overseas.

Foreign outsourcing of manufacturing, research and development and other operations, combined with industry consolidation, is forecast to decrease the number of industry operators during the next five years. This industry has traditionally had a low level of industry concentration, with no one firm dominating. Small operators are common in this type of industry, and typically specialize in developing technology and products for a niche area. Larger players frequently seek to acquire these firms to expand their product range or gain access to a particular technology. But during the five years to 2012, consolidation has swept the industry, with the number of companies decreasing at an average annual rate of 5.5% to total 828. Meanwhile, emerging markets like China and Brazil will attract medical device manufacturers, as US customers face more stringent Medicare reimbursement requirements and other cost-cutting pressures.

New York, NY (PRWEB) March 27, 2012

Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports on new legislation proposed by Representative Edward Markey (D-MA) which will alleviate concerns and reform the 510(k) loophole in the U.S. Food and Drug Administrations (FDA) approval process for medical devices.* Currently, medical device manufacturers can utilize the 510(k) process to receive market approval for devices such as surgical mesh without having to undergo rigorous clinical testing by claiming that the devices are substantially similar to prior versions, even if the prior versions have been recalled.** The new bill, Safety of Untested and New Devices (SOUND) Act, would give the FDA authority to request documentation from manufactures to demonstrate that a new products design has addressed and fixed potential problems if it is based on a prior version with safety issues. During a press conference on March 22, 2012, Representative Markey cited vaginal mesh complications stemming from transvaginal surgical mesh devices, which were approved under the current system, to support his calls for reform. According to the Boston Globe, Markey said in an interview following the briefing that he hoped the legislation would be added to a larger bill about medical devices that Congress is set to vote on at the end of May. [The] loophole in our current law actually requires the FDA to approve certain kinds of medical devices even if they have reason to believe [the devices] may harm or even kill patients, Markey said.

In light of this latest development, Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner Jeffrey S. Grand, who is serving as co-liaison counsel in the New Jersey transvaginal surgical mesh lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson and C.R. Bard, another medical device manufacturer, commented The problems with transvaginal mesh have become a serious public health issue and are indicative that the FDA approval process needs reform. While we believe further reform is needed, this bill is a step in the right direction.

Vaginal Mesh Complications and Mounting Litigation Supports Need For New Legislation

According to the Boston Globe, an FDA spokesperson, Karen Riley, while not officially endorsing the bill, said that the agency has raised the issue of the loophole of the 510(k) process to members of Congress and believes that the new legislation would provide appropriate protections for public health. As Riley told the Boston Globe, a new device is five times as likely to be recalled with a design flaw if it is based on an older device that was itself pulled for safety problems.

Markey appeared at the briefing for the bill with Jay Nevarez, a woman from Colorado who experienced transvaginal mesh complications after receiving a vaginal mesh implant that was based on a previously recalled device. Nevarez is just one of many individuals involved in pelvic mesh litigation litigation against Johnson & Johnson/Ethicon. The Gynecare TVT vaginal mesh implant Nevarez received was approved by the FDA based on its similar design to Boston Scientifics ProtoGen, which was recalled nearly a decade earlier due to the post-surgical complications it caused. As a result of the vaginal mesh complications, Nevarez told the Boston Globe, I lost my job and my health, and am in the process of losing my home.

The lawyers at Bernstein Liebhard are actively filing cases in In re Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10 (N.J. Super Ct.), and In re Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard No. L-6339-10 (N.J. Super. Ct.), which are two consolidated actions of all the vaginal surgical mesh lawsuits filed in New Jersey state court.
