Industry Background

History of medical electronic devices utilized for diagnosing diseases can be traced back to early 1700’s. In 1714, Daniel Fahrenheit invented the first mercury thermometer that is still used to sense the body temperature by the drop of mercury levels. Later with advancements in medical field, in 1901 Rontgen discovered X-rays that currently finds application in diagnosis of various diseases. Since then, several medical devices have been introduced that have helped in diagnosis with minimum errors. Currently, there are drastic changes in the diagnostic methods and the medical electronic devices that were developed earlier have now being improved to impart at most accurate readings. Key industry leaders have increased their R&D efforts to introduce highly efficient medical electronics that have decreased the mortality rates that has a positive impact on the industry progression. Besides, the medical devices industry is still in developing phase and will observe various growth opportunities with further advancements in technology.
