"Did you know that the global market for refurbished medical equipment reached $ 6.47 billion in 2016?”. In recent times, the cost of purchasing new, off-the-shelf medical equipment has steadily increased. The cost of medical equipment is skyrocketing steadily, but the health insurers are reimbursing at lower rates. Many large health systems to small private practitioners are looking to cut their costs by buying refurbished medical equipment as a way to lower their costs. However, before you decide to buy refurbished medical equipment, it is important to understand the difference between ‘refurbished’ vs ‘used’.
Refurbished equipment usually has received some cosmetic or functional repairs of some kind to ensure that it looks as good as new. The refurbishment process includes complete inspection, replacement of worn parts, recalibration, cosmetic maintenance, and equipment testing. On the other hand, used equipment typically comes as-is, it means that you have no guarantee or warranties about how well it will work for and for how long.
