Inspect to Protect Your High-End Medical Device Purchase

15 February, 2012 | device inspection, medical equipment inspection, testing

The necessity for medical device inspection is warranted based on medical, economic and ethical grounds. Since good-quality, updated medical equipment is the basis for the efficiency and performance of healthcare facilities throughout the world, serious attention should be focused on the inspection of the equipment. The obligation of inspection applies especially to devices used for diagnoses and treatment of patients, as equipment in less-than-perfect working condition can have serious consequences.

Due to the increasing need to take responsibility and control medical equipment standards, MedWOW has developed a Global Inspectors Network, including highly trained, certified medical equipment professionals from around the world. These inspectors are carefully selected based on a variety of mandatory qualifications including: manufacturer certification, industry experience, technical specialization, geographic location and more.  Since the local, onsite inspectors operate on a global scale, the service greatly facilitates the trade between users in different countries. In this way, buyers and sellers can trade with assurance online, even with business partners on the other side of the world. 

The inspections can be ordered by buyers prior to making a purchase or by sellers prior to selling an item; with the results made available to potential buyers.  Each type of device has its own set of professionally compiled inspection guidelines with a comprehensive checklist developed by MedWOW.

In addition to thoroughly checking the medical equipment, each expert inspector is required to determine if the device is officially owned by the seller. He must also photograph the equipment, to ensure that the buyer is receiving precisely what was inspected. The inspector can optionally supervise installation and de-installation. 

In summary, the MedWOW’s Global Inspection Network facilitates worry-free trade between buyers and sellers from all over the world, as MedWOW takes care of all the details.
