What is Googles interpretation of a medical device?

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

Hi, I have read Googles Advertising Policies on Healthcare and medicines regarding Medical devices. Here is what Google states:

 

"Google doesn't allow the promotion of medical devices outside the United States and Canada."

 

Under Googles policy, there are no defintions for what is a medical device.

 

I question this because there are in fact companies advertising medical devices in Australia. See screenshot below.

 

Where can I find a list of what is regarded as a medical device?

 

There are many other types of devices which are advertised on Google Adwords, so I am a little confused at the moment and would like clarification.

 

Thank you

Hi Lightcam,

 

Thanks for the post. We actually don't have a list of all the medical devices out there. Since you've come across this ad particular ad and you believe it is in fact advertising for a medical device in a way that violates our policy, you can report it here.
