The increasing investment in medical technology and the rising number of surgical and diagnostic procedures are driving the demand for advanced medical capital equipment globally.
Unlike disposable and small medical devices, standalone capital medical equipment that involves high investment is larger in size and is intended for repeated use on multiple patients over a long period of time. Hospitals and surgical centres require routine as well as preventive maintenance and repair services to ensure the continued quality, safety and effectiveness of this capital equipment.
