The European Union’s new Medical Device Regulation is set to come into force on 26 May, a deadline that has put medical technology developers under pressure to ensure that their products comply with the new rules. But how will these new regulations affect medical device software developers (MDSW)? We speak to international law firm Morrison & Foerster to discuss the changes coming into play for MDSW.

Also in this issue, we take a look at the next phase of medical wearables, explore the potential of an AI-powered healthcare marketplace, proposed by a team of researchers from the University of Sheffield and Vamstar, which is tipped to help NHS buyers evaluate the credibility and capability of suppliers, and find out how copper is being used to design innovative devices in the female contraceptive space.

Plus, we talk to the team behind Within3, a social networking platform designed to improve active engagement across life science companies, and following the announcement that researchers from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel team has reportedly developed mice embryos inside an artificial uterus, we explore the future of life inside the mechanical womb.
