Abstract

This position paper analyses the threats from the current situation of the clinical investigation to the expectations of the new European regulations focusing on high risk medical devices (HRMDs). We present also some opportunities to improve the feasibility and quality of clinical investigation. In summary, investigation protocols of medical devices, advised and authorized by the competent authorities, are few and heterogenous. There is a lack of quality in the existing studies, a lack of methodological knowledge and consequently high expectations for assistance from those involved in the design of clinical study protocols on HRMD. Guidance that is specific to the different type of devices is missing. Adaptive designs, pragmatic trial, usability methods, computer modeling and real world data are gaining more and more traction for assessing the safety and performance of high risk medical devices from a regulatory view-point.
