Technical standards are set by the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC) and published in the Official Journal (OJ) to keep manufacturers of mobility aids such as stairlifts, wheelchairs, electric beds and patient hoists updated with current and forthcoming requirements for demonstrating conformity to the relevant EU Directive:-


1) Machinery Directive (MD)

2) Medical Device Directive (MDD)



Mobility aids play a vital role in helping disabled and elderly people to live their lives more independently, and can reduce the risk of injury or accident related to restricted mobility. It is therefore essential that equipment designed for this purpose should not introduce additional safety hazards. At Cranage, we work with manufacturers of this technology, assisting to evaluate their products for adherence to British, European and International Standards, providing independent and impartial testing facilities for demonstrating safety, reliability and performance.
