MedMarket Diligence tracks the formation of new medical technology companies through the Medtech Startup Database. The database contains records on 900 companies founded since 2001. Below is a tag cloud of keywords in company, product and technology descriptions.
The predominant clinical and technology categories covered, due to a combination of factors including principally their rate of formation and their device-intensive nature, are cardiovascular therapeutics, minimally invasive therapeutics, orthopedics/musculoskeletal and surgery (multiple categories may apply to each company). See a graphic representation of companies added to the database over the 2008-2010 period:
