Covid-19 pandemic heavily affected the Medical Device industry. First and foremost, the implementation of the EU medical device regulations (2017/745) were postponed with year. Additionally, the European commission temporary allows derogation from the regulations in response to the outbreak.

Part II: Case Study: Autonomous robotic intradermal vaccination

With COVID-19 vaccines in development and being evaluated in clinical trials, ROB-ID – an automated intradermal delivery robot - aims to meet vaccine shortages, increase vaccination coverage, and trigger Dose Sparing effects.

Within a time frame of less than a minute, the autonomous system – developed with Voxdale - will administer a vaccine painlessly, while unloading healthcare professionals, with respect for physical distancing.
