SHL Healthcare now have in-house testing capabilities for all types of patient slings to meet the updated ISO 10535:2021 standards. The ISO 10535:2021 is an enhancement of its previous version, where testing thresholds were increased to reflect realistic long-term usage scenarios with the goal of providing safety for both the patient and the attendant. Some examples of the newly developed parameters added/amplified include cycle-tests and duration.
“Customers satisfaction is our utmost priority. As a leading company we continuously develop our capabilities to enhance the overall customer offer. With our latest test equipment, we can offer time and cost-effective solutions”, says Henrik Fritzdorf, Business Development at SHL Healthcare.
These testing services are available to existing customers and as an outsourcing service for those wanting to stay ahead and comply to regulations.
