About Medical Devices In Scotland (MDIS)
In October 2001 Medical Devices In Scotland (MDIS) became an incorporated company in Scotland thanks to industry support and substantial funding from Scottish Enterprise. Established as a ‘not for profit’ organisation, it aims to support and strengthen the medical device industry in Scotland by developing the partnerships between the Scottish NHS, academia and industry to assist the commercialisation of ideas.
Scotland is already home to some 100 medical device manufacturers, as well as many more supply and service organisations that exist to specifically support this industry. MDIS through its activities, promotes the world leading technologies that Scotland develops along side the industry capabilities to apply and manufacture new technologies to medical devices.
