Choosing a Medical Device

Before you choose a medical device or your health care professional chooses one for you, you should consider the following:

  • Do you have limitations that can affect your use of the device?
  • Is the device right for the environment where you plan to use it?
  • Are there device characteristics that can affect its use?
