“A final guidance document issued by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) aims to make medical devices used by patients in their homes safer and more reliable.
In general, medical devices can be divided into two categories: Those intended to be used in professional settings by healthcare professionals, and those intended to be used in home healthcare settings by patients or caregivers.
The latter category, often referred to as “home use devices,” is associated with a unique set of concerns compared to its professional use counterparts. Because the devices are typically used frequently by those without medical training, FDA has taken an interest in making sure that they are designed appropriately for use within the home.”
