Posted by ahila on April 30th, 2018

Reprocessing is an important part in life cycle of medical device in both developed and emerging economies globally. Reprocessing of medical devices is a process of disinfecting, cleaning, testing, sterilizing, packaging, labelling and remanufacturing of used, undamaged & expired medical devices to make it ready for the patient use at reduced and affordable cost. It’s been observed that the reprocessing of medical devices in the emerging countries is directed at decreasing hospital supply costs, which sometimes compromises with safety of the patients. Reprocessed medical devices are the devices which are refurbished and reuse again. The reprocessing of medical devices should follow an authentic process which furnish it fit for the use. In order to reprocess the device factors like life cycle, efficacy, and the potential risk to patient and components used for the manufacture of devices are taken into the consideration.

The global reprocessed medical devices market is anticipated to show sturdy growth during the forecast period owing to significance on reducing the medical waste, rise in the demand of the reprocessed medical devices that are expected to rise the growth of market. Reprocessed medical devices market is propelling by the low-cost, safety for the medical applications and others are likely to boost the demand for the reprocessed medical devices around the globe. Moreover, Government initiatives in collaboration with several private healthcare organizations to promote reprocessed medical devices are driving the demand of reprocessed medical devices across the globe. However, the presence of the negative perceptions related to the quality of reprocessed medical devices and less adoption of the reprocessed medical devices due to the infection are the some of the factors that are likely to hamper the growth of the reprocessed medical device market across the globe.
