On January 16, 2015, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) promulgated a much-anticipated draft guidance1 concerning the classification and regulation of general wellness products. The draft guidance is the FDA's latest attempt to provide some regulatory clarity in the wake of the explosion in popularity of wearable wellness devices and general fitness products. The draft guidance—which slightly loosens the FDA's hold on general wellness products—comports with the FDA's current policy of refocusing its resources on high-risk products and away from products that present low risk to the end-user.
