MedTech20© is designed to facilitate comparisons of the patient-perceived benefit between products as well as across product categories. The aim is to assist in future health care decision-making regarding medical devices, as well as in the development of new medical devices.
The development of MedTech20© was published in Lesén et al, Int J Technol Assess Health Care. 2017 Jan;33(4):463-71.
The instrument is applicable for evaluations of all types of medical devices used by patients with any type of disease or disability, and can be applied at various phases of the device’s life cycle.
The instrument may be applied during early product development to assess the potential value of the medical device from a regulatory and a health care perspective.
