Mobile Medical Applications

1. Product Description

Mobile Medical Application (Mobile Medical App)

Mobile Platforms are defined as commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) computing platforms, with or without wireless connectivity, that are handheld in nature. Examples of these mobile platforms include mobile computers such as the iPhone®, BlackBerry® phones, Android® phones, tablet computers, or other computers that are typically used as smart phones or personal digital assistants (PDAs).  

Mobile Application or "mobile app" is defined as a software application that can be executed (run) on a mobile platform, or a web-based software application that is tailored to a mobile platform but is executed on a server.  

Mobile Medical Application is a mobile app that meets the definition of "device" in section 201(h) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act); and either: is used as an accessory to a regulated medical device; or transforms a mobile platform into a regulated medical device

The intended use of a mobile app determines whether it meets the definition of a "device." As stated in 21 CFR 801 intended use may be shown by labeling claims, advertising materials, or oral or written statements by manufacturers or their representatives. When the intended use of a mobile app is for the diagnosis of disease or other conditions, or the cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease, or is intended to affect the structure or any function of the body of man, the mobile app is a device.

Example – LED included on a mobile platform with a mobile app to make that LED light.
Blood Glucose Monitoring Device etc.
