Topic: Opinions on this idea: an Open Source Ardunio based board for medical devices (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


I'm sure the capital investments needed to hire all the independent testing labs, lawyers, and other non technical hoop hoppers needed would suck the life and wallets right out of any open source group.

That sounds about right........


Thanks very much for your comments.

Just to clarify my idea a little bit:

the open source community shouldn't be responsible for the certification; producers could (if they see potential business) certify a product. Actually, AFAIK, you cannot certify a prototyping board as a medical device, you can certify the final, end-user toy.
Nonetheless, the open source community should take certification as a goal scenario and take high quality requirements into account in the design.
