Rapid Growth in Home Use of Medical Devices Requires New Standards

Read the recent IEC e-tech magazine article (in Oct 2016 e-tech) titled ‘Rapid growth in home use of medical devices requires new standards‘.  It discusses both medical and non-medical home use devices and where standards development is going.  Also, it discusses wellness devices which can be a medical device or a non-medical device depending on its intended use, in some countries.
