The Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has approved the listing of the Balance mat as a Class 1 medical device on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods, with ID no. 380465.
The Balance Mat is listed in the broad category of “Balance/mobility management system platform” under the Global Medical Device Nomenclature system.
This is a significant achievement and allows the Balance Mat to be demonstrated, distributed and sold as a medical device in Australia and overseas.
A key part of the process for TGA listing was the development of the mat making machine pictured above, which was developed in Melbourne and transported to Canberra.
