Compact tester for accurate measurement

Biomed technicians and engineers can quickly and easily verify the safe operation and functionality of defibrillators and AEDs (automated external defibrillator) using the compact, lightweight and portable Rigel Medical UNI-PULSE defibrillator analyser.

Featuring advanced measurement technology, the battery powered analyser offers both manual and automatic test programs for the safe testing of all mono-phasic, bi-phasic and pulsed waveform defibrillators and AEDs.

Bluetooth and USB has been incorporated for improved connectivity, enhanced memory capacity for the storage of results, defibrillator waveforms and test programmes and a clear, easy-to-read colour graphics display screen.  An optional paddle adaptor box includes a version with variable loads from 25 – 200 Ohms for compliance with IEC 60601-2-4 requirements.

The colour LCD provides easy navigation around the functions and simulations including defibrillator waveform capture, accurate energy measurements, cardio synch times, peak voltage and current.

A 12-lead ECG simulation with substantial variation of atrial and ventricular arrhythmias and performance wave forms provides faster, easier and more accurate testing of defibrillators with built-in monitoring functions.

Automatic test programs for AEDs leads to fast and effective testing of AED response, interpretation and performance.

UNI-PULSE can also be used with Rigel Medical’s Med-eBase PC software to provide enhanced electronic recording and management of medical device safety testing programmes.

The new instrument is part of a range of advanced analysers, simulators, testers and accessories from Rigel Medical, part of the Seaward Group, Bracken Hill, South West Industrial Estate, Peterlee, County Durham, SR8 2SW, UK. More at
