The medical device industry is a multi-billion dollar market consisting of various verticals aimed at prolonging a patient’s lives and improving the overall quality of lives. Foremost among the medical device innovation was the development of artificial organs as a substitute of organ transplants. Rapidly aging population worldwide and increased prevalence of lifestyle diseases have led to an increased number of people suffering from organ failures. However, the unavailability of adequate organs and huge scarcity of organ donors have resulted in a global concern regarding organ shortage. Thousands of people die every year while waiting for some vital organ transplantation.
