Safety through quality: these are the most important points for you
The wide range of mobility products of Life & Mobility offers boundary-extending solutions for people with a functional impairment. Quality and safety are central to this.
By law our products must at least comply with the European Medical Devices Directive. To guarantee this, we have our products inspected by TÜV Rheinland Nederland BV, an independent institute that tests, assesses and certifies products. TÜV Rheinland Nederland BV is a partnership between TÜV Rheinland and TNO Quality.
Our products bear the following quality marks.
CE conformity marking
CE (Conformité Européenne) indicates that Life & Mobility declares that the product complies with European regulations. For medical aids this is the European Medical Devices Directive 93/42/EEC.
A wheelchair is considered safe to transport if it complies with the requirements of the ISO 7176-19 standard. This means the wheelchair has passed a crash test and is strong enough to hold the passenger in place during the journey and in the event of an accident.
Remember: The wheelchair must be securely attached to the floor of the taxi or minibus with a four-point fastening system. These four attachment points are indicated on the wheelchair with a sticker.
When changes are made to a wheelchair, the quality marks will be cancelled. Sometimes it may be necessary to make adaptations for the benefit of the user. For such a specially customised product, an authorised person must draw up a Custom-Made certificate. This Custom-Made certificate replaces the CE conformity marking.
Responsibility for the product
If you decide to adapt a Life & Mobility product, you are considered to be a manufacturer. You have to document the product in accordance with the Custom-Made procedure. In this situation you take over the responsibility for the product from the original manufacturer.
