Understanding PAC support surface classification and CE marking
Whilst all powered PAC support surfaces MUST have a CE-mark to be legally sold in Europe did you know that manufacturers of Class I devices self-certify their product and that safety and performance claims of Class I devices are not assessed by an independent Notified Body?
All Talley powered PAC support surfaces are Class IIa medical devices. This means an independent Notified Body checks ALL our claims of device safety and performance BEFORE we can sell our products. To truly deliver safe and effective care to your patients Talley think it makes sense to use medical devices where all claims of device safety and effectiveness have been thoroughly checked. That’s why we are proud to have all of our powered PAC products registered as Class IIa medical devices.
Understanding whole life mattress costs
When choosing which PAC support surfaces to rent or buy for your patients there are several essential elements to consider, these are;
Product safety and performance
PU prevention (evidenced PU incidence reduction)
Quality/Reliability (costs for servicing, breakdowns, spare parts etc.)
Each of the above points will affect the impact of the PAC support surface on the overall costs to the provider. Fortunately our dedicated expert team can talk you through these essential elements that must be considered when deciding on which support surface is the right choice for your facility and most importantly your patients.
