News Release from:
26 February 2010
A trolley case-based biomed field service kit used for the rapid testing of electrical safety and operation of medical devices and equipment used in hospitals, operating theatres and other facilities is now available from Rigel Medical.
The biomed kit – called Med-eKit - features hand-held analysers for electrical safety (Rigel 288), NIBP (Rigel BP-SIM) and SP02 (Rigel OXY-SIM), a battery operated patient simulator, defibrillator analyser, ventilator tester, printer and barcode scanner and asset management software housed within a compact and lightweight wheeled Pelican trolley case.
Foam inserts safely hold the instrumentation in place and provide protection during transportation, while the kit can be further customised to meet individual specifications with the inclusion of a laptop, multi-metre, temperature metre and power analyser.
Med-eKit is suitable for field service engineers requiring a flexible, easy-to-use and accurate solution for testing medical devices for both functionality and electrical safety to manufacturer’s specification or to a number of internationally accepted standards and guidelines such as: IEC 62353, IEC/EN60601-1, VDE 0751-1, AS/NZS 3551, AAMI, NFPA-99, MDA DB 9801-2006 etc.
Traceability is improved with the Rigel 288 as information can be downloaded into Med-eBase – an easy-to-use asset management software. This enables the user to store and manage test results, email html test certificates to clients and schedule new work orders, which can then be fully uploaded into the Rigel 288’s large onboard memory.
The lightweight and battery-powered Rigel BP-Sim utilises patented technology to simulate a wide range of blood pressures to verify the accuracy and safe operation of all leading NIBP monitors currently used in healthcare and medical facilities.
The OXY-Sim SP02 is the first hand held simulator of its type featuring pulse volume adjustments, heart rate and manufacturer specific R-curves, combined with large capacity internal memory for the data capture, storage and downloading via Bluetooth of test results for record keeping.
Med-eKit forms part of a comprehensive range of high performance specialist biomedical test equipment supplied by Rigel Medical, part of the Seaward Group. Rigel Medical is based at Bracken Hill, South West Industrial Estate, Peterlee, County Durham, SR8 2SW.
