Medidex is the Medical Device Index website, maintained by SMTL.
The site acts as a repository of information on medical devices. The information may have been generated as:
- Work undertaken for Welsh NHS procurement processes in conjunction with Procurement Services (formally Welsh Health Supplies). This would typically include test reports of medical devices or our medical device datacards;
- Work undertaken for the Welsh NHS as part of SMTL's R&D remit. Examples of this would include work on single use screws and plates;
- Work undertaken on a commercial basis for medical device manufacturers and suppliers. This includes test reports for products tested at SMTL.
We hope that the information may be useful to those working in healthcare, industry or academia.
