To address the dilemma of donated medical equipment sitting idle in healthcare facilities, MedShare invests significant time and resources in a state-of-the-art biomedical equipment training and repair service that provides the safest and highest quality medical equipment to our beneficiaries.
Medical technology is essential for safe and effective prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation. It is vital for healthcare facilities to have functioning medical equipment that is safe, reliable, and available for diagnostic procedures, therapy, treatment, and monitoring of patients.
MedShare’s Biomedical Equipment Training & Repair Service focuses on providing quality, functional medical equipment — including biomedical engineering training — to those in need. We focus on the principles of quality donations and sustainability to include:
MedShare’s Biomedical Engineering Department follows the Principles and Guidelines of medical equipment donation as instituted by the World Health Organization.
Medical equipment has become a fundamental part of modern healthcare delivery, enabling screening, prevention, diagnostics, treatment and palliative care. Donations of critical medical equipment are essential in helping health systems in developing nations treat more patients successfully, but only if medical staff are trained on how to use and repair equipment.
As medical technology becomes increasingly complicated to operate and repair, the need for highly trained medical technicians is fundamental for hospitals and clinics worldwide. MedShare’s Biomedical Equipment Training & Repair Service has an immediate and significant impact on strengthening and sustaining global health systems.
MedShare has a team of professionally trained biomedical engineers and technicians who service all medical equipment before delivery. Additionally, we send biomedical engineers to various countries to provide hands-on training to end-users, engineers, technicians and healthcare professionals.
In addition to the overseas needs assessments that MedShare provides, we work closely with local universities in metro Atlanta to provide hands-on training to over 2,500 students enrolled in Georgia Institute of Technology, DeVry University, Chattahoochee Technical College.
