The Importance of Equipment Annual Safety Checks and Calibrations

Has this ever happened to you:

You’re working with a patient, and as you go to use a piece of equipment you notice that it doesn’t seem to work quite right. This is not only embarrassing for you as a professional running a business, but it can be a potentially dangerous scenario for both you and the patient.

Having annual maintenance and/or calibration services performed on your equipment is one way to avoid this situation.

In fact, most certifying agencies and state regulations require annual safety checks and calibrations for all equipment (consistent with the manufacturer’s recommendation) to ensure patient safety and consistent therapy. Most manufacturers also require calibration once a year to maintain their warranties.

Equipment typically requiring annual calibration includes:

  • electrical stimulation units
  • ultrasound units
  • treadmills
  • isokinetic machines
  • traction units
  • pinch gauges
  • hydrocollators
  • and others

The good news is that MeyerPT can help provide a solution for all of your EQ needs – including helping you with maintenance and calibration.
