Medical Software Development according to ISO 13485/IEC 62304

Due to our experience in software development, we are able to develop, verify, validate and maintain entire software products and also sub-projects both efficiently and compliantly. Development processes help us to fulfil the applicable requirements, such as IEC 62304, CE and FDA. The ISO 13485 certification gives us the authorization for "Development and development services for hardware and embedded software for medical products as well as stand-alone software as medical products.".

Our team develops exclusively for customers from the medical technology sector. All necessary processes are implemented, the tools used are validated and the corresponding procedures and documentation structures are lean and well established. The broad positioning of ISS AG (Regulatory Affairs, Quality Management, SW-Development, Clinicals) also benefits your software projects and favours an efficient product approval and thus a fast market access. If you see bottlenecks in your resources, we support you in completing your product on time. 



Cloud Solution for Compliant Medical Device Software (MDSW)

Medical applications, even seemingly simple ones like medical calculators, are considered medical devices. Therefore, they must meet stringent regulatory requirements, leading to complex and costly development and operations.

We offer an innovative solution to address these challenges – our digital platform. The key principle of our platform is the segregation of non-medical devices and medical devices. This means that a digital application, such as a medical calculator, can be developed, in compliance with the regulations, on the ISS Digital Platform. As a user, you have the option to use these medical calculators independently or integrate them into your existing information system. The digital module will remain a medical device, thanks to our compliant development and operations on our platform.

The ISS Digital Platform provides the answer to the complex requirements of digital medical device development and integration. Learn more in our flyer or contact us directly for more information.


Your advantages at a glance:

Cost Control

thanks to the innovative cloud concept that ensures the segregation of medical device modules from non medical device modules.

Regulatory Assurance

with our regulatory affairs experts who ensure compliance with all requirements.

Seamless Integration

into existing systems (e.g. HIS) with standardized REST-APIs.


Our Skills and Expertise

We have a team of software engineers with strong hardware and electronics backgrounds. This enables us to support customers beyond software development also on hardware level. Since SW and HW interact strongly with each other, our SW engineers are also available to advise on HW development.

For many years we have been developing software and firmware for medical devices with our own IEC 62304 compliant processes and tools in our QMS or under the QMS of our customers. Many of these software products are now part of approved medical devices and have been used in millions of patients.

Our skills and expertise include among others:

Medical image and signal processing

Development and maintenance of embedded software, standalone software and webapplications

Touchscreen user interfaces for various medical devices

Database design and implementation for webapplications and standalone software

USB-Stack for most used interfaces

Wireless communication via RFID, Bluetooth, ANT, Wifi

Robust handling of various on-board and wired communication interfaces

Real-time software and efficient multithreading

Battery monitoring and management solutions

Security development lifecycle

Development of prototypes and small series for clinical studies

Integration of risk management according to ISO 14971


The following technologies are mainly used:

Hardware and Plattforms

Hardware and Plattforms

- Windows, Linux, OS X, iOS & Android
- Keil RTX 5
- Secure Remote-Updates
- STM32, TI & Microchip uC
- Wide coverage of known periphery and communication modules


- C, C++, C# for all levels of concern / risk classes
- Matlab / Mathematica

  • Patient-specific prediction and surgery planning in refractive surgery
  • Software and firmware for a diagnostic device for urology and gynecology
  • Software and firmware for hardware control, data acquisition and data preparation of a diagnostic device for ophthalmology with three different measuring methods.

Solutions and Factsheets

Medtech Software Engineering

Our long-standing experience in medical software engineering and regulatory affairs allow us to support you in achieving the development of Digital MedTech products, their registration and maintenance on the market of your choice, worldwide.


Disposables / consumables are becoming an increasingly important part of the business model. ISS AG has developed an RFID-supported concept that offers the highest possible copy protection and additional security features, while at the same time being extremely user-friendly. Marketing and sales thus open up new ways for innovative business models, with great customer proximity, added value and customer loyalty.

Embedded Linux

Medical devices are often based on embedded Linux, with specific requirements for the toolchain and the base system. ISS AG configured and developed system images and toolchains based on Yocto Linux and Ubuntu to provide a reliable platform for the application software with a controllable update process.

Embedded Windows

Complex medical devices are often controlled by application software that depends on Microsoft Windows. Both consumer and enterprise Windows systems are unsuitable for medical devices due to the complexity of their maintenance. Windows IoT is the platform for industrial systems and is successfully used by ISS AG in several customer projects for medical devices.

Ready-To-Market Medical Device Software

Thanks to our many years of experience in the areas of software development for medical devices, regulatory affairs and product maintenance, we are the ideal partner to help you achieve and maintain market readiness and CE certification for medical device software.
