Which medical products are most likely to save your life?
According to a new study, you should always consider purchasing a medical device if you’re concerned about the safety of it, and even if you don’t.
The study, by medical device manufacturer Philips and health insurance company Aetna, found that there were about 3.2 million new medical devices introduced in the U.S. in 2016.
This figure has increased about 30 percent over 2015, which is a sign that consumers are increasingly willing to buy medical devices for their health care needs.
According to the study, consumers were asked which medical devices they most wanted to purchase, with the majority (61 percent) opting for an electronic device, followed by a laptop or smartphone, and then a pacemaker.
More than two-thirds (67 percent) of respondents also mentioned the health benefits of buying medical devices, such as reducing blood pressure, cholesterol and blood clots.
In addition to offering the most options, Philips also said that it is the best-selling medical device brand, accounting for over half (54 percent) the total device market.
It’s a notable statistic considering the company was once accused of stealing the name from a popular medical device.
Philips says it has “always maintained that we are committed to creating products that are both innovative and well-designed,” and that its new study proves that “these new claims are the true product of the innovation.”
The study surveyed over 1,000 consumers between March 2017 and May 2018 and included questions about health care use, cost and availability of devices.
The findings are based on responses from over 4,000 people, and the results show that devices are becoming increasingly popular, especially among the younger population.
The study found that people who are over age 55 are spending an average of about $6,000 per year on health care, compared to $3,000 for younger people.
It also found that the number of people who say they use their medical device to treat a serious illness or chronic illness has tripled in the last two years, from 1.6 million in 2016 to 3.5 million in 2017.
This is likely due to increased awareness and the increased use of the devices.
