Wie Dynamische Softwareanalyse die Zulassung von Medizingeräten vereinfachen kann

Zwei der großen Herausforderungen für Hersteller von medizintechnischen Geräten sind heute a) Sicherheitsnachweise und b) Zulassungsprozesse. In diesem Whitepaper beleuchten wir, wie dynamische Softwareanalyse helfen kann, nachzuweisen, dass die Sicherheitsanforderungen erfüllt werden und was entsprechende Tools können sollten. Wir bilden außerdem Entwicklungstätigkeiten auf die IEC 62304 Anforderungen ab und zeigen auf, welche Eigenschaften das einzusetzende Embedded-OS mitbringen sollte.
