Hi Tim- We cannot speak for the entire medical device, only our wire & cable.  Frankly, I don't know what the procedures are for disposal of Medical Devices.  I do know that Electronic Equipment typically falls under the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive, and all of our EcoGen products (EcoWire, EcoWire Plus, EcoCable, and EcoFlex) are WEEE compliant.

The article stated that the MPPE insulation is recyclable.  With the use as a medical device, would the recyclability of the item be considered as a selling point for the device?  Wouldn't medical devices be considered bio-hazzard after use?

I'm curious if MPPE is mostly limited to medical devices. If so, why?

Excellent article.  It's interesting how "building block" products play a role in continuing to make medical devices smaller and lighter.  The environmental aspects of MPPE is a good bonus and increasingly becoming a decision point for consumers.
