Embase supports medical device development and post-market surveillance
Information found in the biomedical literature strengthens every stage of the medical device life cycle, from concept and design through clinical trials to release and reimbursement. Regulatory authorities require medical device companies to screen the biomedical literature during the approval process and for post-market surveillance. Embase includes unique medical device information and indexing, making it an indispensable resource.

Embase is an essential resource for post-market monitoring of medical devices—I can't imagine doing that kind of safety monitoring without it.
