Why South Australia?

The South Australian medical device sector enjoys an outstanding reputation internationally for delivering best-practice, high quality and ethical medical technologies.

South Australia also has a history of world-first developments over several decades, from the first disposable syringe in the 1950s, to some of the world’s leading medical laser technologies today. These technologies include photonics and advanced sensing, ophthalmic, orthopaedic, scanning and diagnostic, reproductive, surgical and digital health technologies.

The increasing demand for medical technologies presents a dynamic leadership opportunity for South Australia in the MedTech space.


Operating with an agenda to advance manufacturing in South Australia, MedDev SA focuses on long-term economic development results for new and established medical device manufacturers.

We seek to improve the state’s presence in the global medical device sector by improving the commercialisation rate of SA’s medical device industry through collaboration, investment and improved productivity, as well as building new international markets.
