Medical devices include a broad range of medical instruments used for patient monitoring, and the diagnosis and treatment of diseases or abnormal physical conditions, including cardiac, orthopedic, respiratory, and ophthalmic diseases. They range from simple medical devices to complex programmable devices such as pacemakers and laser surgical devices. They are classified based on their characteristics, complexity, and potential harm.
The medical devices market in Japan is the second largest market after the medical devices market in the US. The healthcare sector in Japan is more focused toward the elderly population because the country has the highest number of geriatric population in the world. The policy to reduce the length of hospital stay and shift the treatment to home care centers is one of the major agendas of Japanese healthcare reform. The healthcare authorities in Japan provide less co-pay for the treatment of patients aged 75 years and above. Further, the government in Japan has taken initiatives to reduce device lag and accelerate the approval process, which provides an opportunity to foreign vendors to tap the market in Japan. The strong IP protection by the government in Japan for innovative products has created an opportunity for the launch of novel products in the country.
