Why did you opt for refurbished medical equipment rather than new equipment?

I chose to incorporate refurbished imaging system at my centre because at an affordable cost I get to use state-of-the art technology that gives me excellent image quality as well.

Among refurbished medical equipment players, what parameters did you use to choose the supplier of your choice, in this case Sanrad?

SANRAD's solid reputation of supplying high quality refurbished equipment with excellent service backup and minimum down time as well as availability of necessary spares with the company.

There are many contentions related to the quality and durability of refurbished equipment, how would you justify the same?

Our facility has been using refurbished equipment for last 13 years. We have zero problems with it provided you choose the right vendor. Otherwise, if you have a wrong vendor (and there are many fly-by-night operators in this segment) beware of them ... it's a nightmare !

Why did you opt for refurbished medical equipment rather than new equipment?

Most of the high end medical equipments are imported from abroad, and I feel we should use our resources wisely and prevent meaningless waste of our earnings. Moreover a good quality refurbished system of a desired equipment has the same specification and functionality as that of a new system. Moreover the lower capital cost of these equipments enables us to sustain the overheads of maintaining such highly sophisticated units thereby offering patients services at affordable costs.

Among refurbished medical equipment players, what parameters did you use to choose the supplier of your choice, in this case SANRAD?

We see major three parameters in choosing the right equipment:

  • Equipment has to be of latest technology, not very old.
  • System should be sturdy with proven performance
  • Technical competence and efficient after sales service of supplier

In the case of SANRAD we feel that they are the only company strongly committed to the above conditions.

There are many contentions related to the quality and durability of refurbished equipment, how would you justify the same?

I personally use refurbished CT scanners supplied by SANRAD since last 15 years and I must say with pride that they provide good quality latest technology equipments with excellent after sales service. Companies like SANRAD have played a major role in establishing the confidence of healthcare industry professionals in refurbished equipment.

With a good saving in capital cost, considering the vast installation base of SANRAD, I feel they have helped our country save more than RS 150 crores in foreign exchange. Also, the re-use of high end medical equipment reduceS e-waste and helps in preventing CO2 emissions produced during the manufacturing processes.
