Clinical trials for medical devices
What are clinical trials for medical devices?
Clinical trials for medical devices are very similar to drug trials. However, medical device trials are typically smaller in scale and require fewer phases. Some medical devices (e.g. Class I) don’t even require a clinical trial at all. In any case, clinical trials for medical devices involve patients or healthy volunteers that are testing new technologies while being carefully monitored.

How Citruslabs streamlined Oxford VR’s clinical trial
Oxford VR provides commercially available VR technology to transform mental health. To aid their expansion to the US market, they needed a clinical study showing evidence of their claims and outcomes for people with mild to moderate mental health problems, such as depression and anxiety. They were looking for a CRO that was supporting their budget and that could manage the trial on their behalf.
While the Oxford VR research team was designing the study, Citruslabs took over the writing of the clinical protocol and supporting study material to ensure a speedy IRB approval process. Recruiting and retaining high-quality patients in the study was particularly important, as all patients had to return the expensive headset after the study completion. The clinical trial was successfully completed to support the market entry of Oxford VR’s revolutionary immersive technology to support people with mental health problems.
