Furniture & Mobility Devices

There are a large variety of healthcare-specific furniture and mobility devices, and they are more complicated than one might think. Even something as simple as a bed can be very high-tech, with incorporated monitoring systems and emergency care functions.

These devices also have more rigorous requirements compared to their mundane equivalents, as they are considered medical devices. For example, these devices must be designed in a way that facilitates effective disinfection and they must also be constructed from materials that are able to withstand the disinfection practices used in healthcare environments. If the device is electrically powered, then it must meet standards that are stricter than those for electrically powered devices outside of healthcare. In addition, it must be verified that the materials used are non-toxic, and that the device will perform its function as described by the manufacturer.
