How do I get FDA Approval for an at-home Hardware Device?

I am looking for a consultant to help me navigate the FDA approval process. I am converting a clinical device into hardware for use at-home directly by the end user. I would like somebody to help describe procedure and estimate timeline and cost. What is the best way to find this person?

Have you figured out what medical device class your device falls into? (1, 2, or 3). That's the first step. If your device is a class 1 or 2 device, are you planning on going through the full approval process, or 510(k) premarket notification? It sounds like your existing clinical device might be a good predicate if you choose to go that route, and it will get you on the market much faster. I should warn you that going through either process will be expensive and time-consuming.

See http://www.fda.gov/MedicalDevices/DeviceRegulationandGuidance/Overview/ClassifyYourDevice/ for the various device classifications and the procedures required to get the device on the market.

Robert, it seems like you have found some great resources to help navigate the best approach for 510k/FDA clearance. If you need any help with creating the product for home use, we have done a number of products for the home, many of which leverage connectivity via mobile devices through apps for iOS and Android. If your device will be mobile-linked, we recommend submitting your app to Apple before finalizing your Instructions for Use (IFU) for submission to the FDA - as Apple has some strict rules about usability that often result in changes to the UI and to the IFU.
