Welcome to MassDevice’s annual audit of the ups, downs and in-betweens of the year that was. For the medical device industry, 2011 was more or less defined by a nagging sense of uncertainty that hung over the world’s med-tech companies like a grey cloud above a summer picnic.
But what did we learn from all the conjecture? In truth, not much. The year ends much as it began, full of questions with no cut and dry answers as we turn the calendar over into the new year.
