The Refurbishing Process:

CardiacDirect's extensive library of service manuals, large inventory of parts and highly trained, in-house biomedical engineers have allowed them to set the standard for technical refurbishment of medical equipment.

This library of service manuals and large parts inventory allow their biomeds to refurbish each piece of equipment according to the original manufactures specifications. Every part and system is tested electronically for proper operation and conformity. There are test points and values from the manuals and technical software that is used.

First, there is decontamination and cleaning. An initial physical condition check and once the unit is approved it goes into the technical refurbishment stage. The batteries are replaced allowing for testing to begin. If the print head does not meet factory specification, it is replaced. There are diagnostics built in to test many of the subcomponents.

All circuit boards are removed, inspected and repaired or replaced as necessary and connectors tested for like new integrity. The treadmill is completely disassembled and refinished as necessary to bring it up to a new appearance. Rollers are rebuilt and bearings replaced. Walking belts are replaced with new and internal belts are replaced as necessary. The monitor and treadmill are then tested individually and then joined as a system and checked for exact proper operation by running a full stress test.

The next step to assure the highest quality of products is their complete cosmetic recondition process. At this point, every piece of equipment is inspected for any wear and tear. Units are then sanded, primed and painted as necessary. CardiacDirect uses the highest quality products in this process and all equipment is painted in their brand new AFC paint booth by factory trained staff. The result of this comprehensive process, is a piece of equipment that is completely functional and free of all blemishes.

Upon replacement of malfunctioning parts and components, the system is reassembled. The system is cycled for 12 hours intermittently. Just prior to shipping, CardiacDirect's service manager will set the monitor and treadmill up as a system and test one final time.

Each unit undergoes rigorous quality assurance checks and only after satisfactory certified – it goes in packaging and shipping. It takes an average of 24 to 48 hours to process a system through refurbishing.

All accessory parts, interconnect cables, patient cables, manuals, 1 pack of paper and an envelope of stress electrodes, stress belt, paper tray go into a box to insure that the system can be turned on and operated the same day it arrives.
