Medical Technology
Live with Confidence

Medical electronics is a sector which addresses the design, use, and implementation of electronic
equipment and devices for medical uses such as examination, diagnosis, research and treatment.

The market is expected to grow rapidly in the near future, including medical technology used for
therapeutics and patient monitoring, alongside homecare products and handheld products.Among other issues, the integration of wireless technology into medical devices has created a
need to demonstrate that they are safe from the effects of other radio-emitting products.

Examples of the wide variety of medical electrical products that require testing for basic safety and essential performance include: patient monitoring equipment, ophthalmic devices, dental equipment, defibrillators, muscle and nerve stimulators, ventilators, oxygen concentrators, sleep apnea / CPAP devices, haemodialysis equipment, endoscopy devices, infusion pumps, blood pressure monitoring devices, thermometers, medical heating blankets, ultrasonic medical diagnostic and monitoring equipment, medical beds, operating tables, surgical/cosmetic/therapeutic/diagnostic laser systems, , and in-vitro diagnostic medical devices (IVD).
