Safety & Health Compliance EMI / EMF Surveys for Implantable Medical Devices
As an increasing number of individuals have lifesaving and life-enhancing biomedical devices surgically implanted in their body, the need for testing home and workplace safety has also become more commonplace.
Also, the electromagnetic environment that these implantable biomedical devices are exposed to has become more complex and intense with an increasing number of potential sources of interference.
ScanTech has years of experience in researching, surveying and documenting environments in order to determine potential risk factors. In some cases, the real danger can come from unexpected sources, such as a large section of magnetized metal in the workplace or a high powered 2 way radio.
