From Clinical Innovation to the Market, Choices of a StartUp to Navigate the current Regulations. Fitting a promising innovative technology (applying photonics and pics) into solving a relevant clinical problem requires many critical choices to consider early on.

Based on a real-world example in measuring cardiac output in heart patients, Arthur Bouwman, cardio-anaesthesiologist and co-founder of a medical device start-up, and Claus Schaffrath, partner at a medical device consultancy, describe clinical and regulatory choices, and their consequences for bringing a medical device to the market.

Being innovative requires a lot of specific technological expertise from companies. In order for a medical device to become a success in the market and to improve people’s lives, these technical challenges come with hurdles such as compliance with applicable regulations.
