Medical remanufacturing restores a used medical device to “as new” functional and safety standard with matching warranty. Medical remanufacturing enables a circular economy within the medical device sector. It helps conserve the planet’s valuable resources while keeping costs low — without compromising on safety or performance.
Vanguard AG develops pioneering and certified medical remanufacturing processes that enable a circular economy for medical devices and allow hospitals to reduce carbon emissions, save resources and protect their budgets.
We extend the product life cycle of medical devices and enable a more sustainable future for the medical device sector. By giving new life to single-use medical devices, we combat climate change and protect our planet’s resources.
Through medical remanufacturing, the pursuit of sustainability pays off. There are no additional costs involved; in fact, medical remanufacturing can result in cost savings of up to 50 per cent.
Using certified, state-of-the-art processes, we set global standards for medical remanufacturing. We ensure that our remanufactured products are restored to “as new” functional and safety standards and fully comply with all EU regulatory requirements.
It’s possible with Vanguard! Original Equipment Re-Manufacturing.
With pioneering remanufacturing processes, Vanguard AG extends the product life cycle of single-use medical devices and thus enables a more sustainable healthcare system.
Positive Impact of medical remanufacturing on climate change
Fraunhofer UMSICHT recently completed a groundbreaking study that compared the resource efficiency and environmental impact of the production of a virgin catheter to a remanufactured catheter by Vanguard.
We enable medical facilities to operate more sustainably, ensuring a better future for users, patients and the planet
Reducing CO2 emissions, conserving resources, saving costs
Original equipment manufacturers are increasingly looking for ways to become more ecologically and economically sustainable. We partner with OEM manufacturers to help develop suitable remanufacturing processes. Rely on the competence and professionalism of Vanguard for all your remanufacturing needs.
Sustainability pays off
We offer a wide range of remanufactured electrophysiology and surgical devices.
Our devices meet the same criteria in terms of safety, functionality and performance as new devices. We assume product liability that matches that of the original manufacturer.
In the world of medical technology, “PMS” is an essential acronym that stands for “Post-Market Surveillance.” In this process information about medical devices being used in the market is systematically collected, analysed and evaluated. The main goal of PMS is to monitor and then ensure the safety and performance of medical devices.
Companies bear a responsibility to the community and contributing a positive development to our society. At Vanguard AG, this statement is not just a mere lip service; it’s a guiding principle we live by.
The national academies of medicine, pharmacy, and surgery in France have taken a positive stance on the reprocessing of single-use medical devices. The tri-academy working group published a statement at the beginning of November.
