Companies in the Healthcare and Medical Technology sectors develop new healthcare products with high added value by applying advanced knowledge and expertise. In order to keep up to date with state of the art in the field, successfully diversify to these sectors, and to do it in a relatively short period of time, one of the key points is sufficient training of company staff in three main topics:
- Medical Devices Regulation (EC Directives, Standards, etc.),
- Medical Device Design and Quality Management (best practices in design and manufacturing),
- Biomechanics and Biomaterials.
Moreover, due to the continuous changes in the medical device regulations, it is necessary to provide training in these issues also to staff of those companies which are already in the healthcare technology sector.
The main objective of ToHealth is to transfer and update of knowledge in biomechanics, regulatory affairs, and medical devices through an online training course for the staff of those companies interested in diversifying to the medical technology sector, and also those companies already in the sector but who need to update knowledge in this field.
