Most outstanding for med tech in 2014 is the influx of investor interest--as a wave of major M&A transactions opened the door for Wall Street gains and venture capitalists started to loosen purse strings that had been tightening for years.
As med tech's profile is rising among investors, the sector is also working toward unprecedented, perhaps even revolutionary, fundamental advances addressing major unmet patient needs in areas such as blindness, deafness, obesity and chronic pain.
