Résumé For several centuries, people, mostly in high-resource settings, have benefited from a host of discoveries and developments that have improved health. The building of sewage and clean water systems, the discovery of pathogens and antibiotics, and the eradication of smallpox are notable examples. In the medical device arena, outstanding developments to date have produced heart-lung machines and artificial joints, and the means to perform advanced brain surgery, to mention only a few examples. Modern medical technology (the application of medical devices) which dates its origins to the first half of the 19th century, only took off in earnest over the last 50 years. Very quickly, medical devices have become an essential part of health care and a vital component of the numerous activities carried out by health-care providers in their efforts to diagnose and treat people with medical conditions, and to alleviate the problems faced by people with functional disabilities.
