On February 8th of this year the FDA announced Innovation Pathway, a new program dedicated to the priority review of new medical devices. The first submission selected for the program is an upper-extremity prosthetic that is controlled by the brain. This device is a pilot and will help determine the efficacy of the program. The FDA will also ask for additional public comment regarding the program before it is implemented on a widespread basis.
