Medical devices equip healthcare providers with tools to perform their functions effectively and efficiently. They are considered crucial for the services offered in prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of illness and disease. Every country needs to establish systems for standardising and regulating them for patient safety and for increasing access to quality healthcare.
Innovating with quality in mind is the discipline and science of ensuring that all product development activities are compliant with quality and regulatory standards – both internal and external. It means not working en vacuo while inventing new technologies but understanding the industry environment, regulatory climate and applicable risk management and testing standards that will ultimately govern whether your product makes it into a healthcare provider’s hands or not. The FDA approves products, not innovations.
Intersurgical is Europe’s leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of a wide range of medical devices for respiratory support.

For ensuring the quality of the medical devices Intersurgical believes in the efficient testing equipment from Tinius Olsen. Adding to the line of existing 5kT, 10kT and Melt flow testers, they have recently bought brand new 10ST which makes sure that all the relevant standards required for the compliance with BS, ISO and EN are met.
