Medical technology

Over the last decade, the medical technology sector has thrived and New Zealand has earned a reputation as an emerging breeding ground of medical technology innovation and excellence.

The term ‘medical technology’ encompasses a wide range of technologies, from therapeutics, diagnostics, implantables, medical devices and research instruments to healthcare IT and hospital equipment.

Protecting medical technologies is crucial, but successful IP protection requires complex insight and expertise. There isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ IP strategy for every medical technology invention. Some inventions will be mechanical in nature. Others may involve electronics or software. Some will be based on discoveries of chemical or pharmacological effects of new or existing drugs. It is therefore essential that you are advised by IP experts who have a thorough understanding of your medical technology.
