Medical devices are included in the fields of medical and health technology and encompass a wide range of health care products.

Directive 2007/47/EC, for example, defines a medical device as, "any instrument, apparatus, appliance, software, material or other article, whether used alone or in combination, including the software intended by its manufacturer to be used specifically for diagnostic and/or therapeutic purposes and necessary for its proper application, intended by the manufacturer to be used for human beings."
