Medical & Therapeutic Devices




Some of the items tested include patient trolleys, hospital beds, wheelchairs and hoists, autoclaves, syringe pumps, ECG monitors, TENS devices, and a range of instruments for cardio-respiratory diagnostics and blood analysis. The global market for medical electrical equipment is rapidly growing and international harmonization of technical standards is important to improve access to new technologies.

In Europe the technical standards are set by the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC) and apply to the following EU Directives:-

Our accredited laboratory specialises in the assessment of Class 1, 2a and 2b medical electrical equipment with type B, BF and CF applied parts. Our engineers are trained and qualified to apply IEC60601-1 (2nd and 3rd Editions), IEC60601-1-2 (4th Edition) and have experience of evaluating electrical equipment intended to be used in the diagnosis, treatment or monitoring of a patient, or for compensation or alleviation of disease, injury or disability.
