Movesense Medical ECG and Movement Sensor’s MDR Registration Progressing as Planned

Movesense is delighted to announce that the MDR conformity assessment process of the Movesense Medical ECG and movement sensor is proceeding as scheduled. The first phase of the assessment was completed in October 2022. The team is now working on the next steps, aiming for the process finalization in a timely manner. Movesense Medical classification will be updated when the product certification according to the new MDR requirements is completed.

The EU requirements for medical devices are getting stricter, as the EU Medical Device Directive MDD 93/42/EEC is being replaced by the new Medical Device Regulation 2017/745 (MDR). Compliance with MDR is mandatory for all new medical devices brought to the EU market, and transition for existing devices from MDD to MDR is required by May 2024.

Movesense Medical is a Class IIa ECG and movement sensor that is developed by the Finnish wearable technology pioneer Movesense. The product sales and delivery to current and new customers continues under the existing and valid MDD certification, while we are implementing the extensive new requirements of the MDR.

Movesense MDR Registration will help companies looking for a wearable ECG and movement sensor for health use

MDR registration of Movesense Medical is an integral part of this, and we believe it will be a big competitive advantage for the product and a major benefit for our customers who use our sensors in their health applications, whether they’re related to medical research, clinical studies, remote patient monitoring, rehabilitation or beyond, says Movesense CEO Jussi Kaasinen.
