MeBer: emergency…shock proof!

MeBer: emergency…shock proof!

MeBer focuses on the theme of devices safety and reliability since the beginning of its activity, anticipating today European standards and market requirements. The inspiring philosophy is that a medical device, in line with the compulsory standards, must preserve both the patient and the operators’ safety, minimizing risk of accidents and relieving operators from any eventual legal or moral responsability.
MeBer has started to perform 10G tests on its products since 2001 and nowdays the most of MeBer products are 10G certified!

EUROPEAN NORMATIVES FOR A SAFE TRANSPORT
The European Normatives concerning the standards to adopt on stretchers and emergency devices while trasporting patients inside ambulances are the norms EN 1865 and EN 1789. This last integrates and completes the first one.
The European Standard EN 1865, or UNI EN 1865 in Italy, is valid since last 1999 and it imposes strict technical standards, such as materials, configurations, maximum high and width, maximum weight, minimum load and so on, in order to ensure the devices safety during the transport inside emergency vehicles. The EN 1789 has been enacted to complete the EN 1865 and imposes that medical devices and their relevant fixing systems must be rigorously 10G tested. The 10G proof states that the devices fixed inside emergency vehicles are able to support in case of crash an acceleration equal to 10 times their weight plus, in case of devices for patient movimentation, the everage weight of a person (approx. 75 kg), in case of crash. In particular, the norm extablishes that such strenght must be supported in any directions without the risk of causing demages to patient or operators inside ambulance.

MEBER RESEARCH AND INNOVATION FOR SAFETY
MeBer technical department developed GBox (Static Forces Testing Unit), a machine enterely designed to perform in-house static 10G tests on MeBer medical devices and fixing systems. Only if the device has fully and efficiently passed the static test with GBox machine, MEBER technicians are 100% sure that it will also be successfull pass the dynamic tests and relevant crashes performedby those specific recognized certificator facilities.
