Please help iNEMI identify critical components for medical devices!

Click here to access survey.

We invite you to participate in the iNEMI survey, Identification of Critical Components for Medical Devices.

This survey was developed by the iNEMI Component Specifications for Medical Devices Project team. Today, there are no standard medical industry specifications for the qualification of components or their suppliers. Every component that is purchased for high-reliability medical products must be individually qualified. This situation increases costs for component manufacturers since every medical device OEM can have different requirements. This high cost of business can make the component manufacturers unresponsive to the medical device market. The lack of standard specifications adds time and cost to the introduction of new components, new technologies and, ultimately, new products. This iNEMI project will address these issues by identifying and defining a set of component-level reliability qualification methods for electronic components used in implantable and wearable medical devices. The goal is to develop specifications that can be accepted by device OEMs as well as supported by component suppliers.

Focus of Survey
This iNEMI survey - Identification of Critical Components for Medical Devices - will be used to determine the selection of the most relevant components to be considered by the project team. We appreciate you taking 10 minutes to complete and submit the survey.

We plan to close the survey on October 1st, so please give us your input as soon as possible. Feel free to pass information about this survey!
