Heart failure – one of the most feared medical incidents. If the heart fails, then so does everything else. The same is true of your application’s power supply. If it fails, then the entire system is affected – with catastrophic consequences for medical technology.
That is why a reliable power supply partner is essential. We want to live up to that expectation. Since the invention of the first plug-in power supply unit in 1971, our customers have relied on our expertise – and we have manufactured far over a billion power supply units. Almost half a century’s experience, and our German engineering skill, guarantee your application’s power supply – and with it the patient’s safety.
FRIWO’s medical power supply solutions are designed for the most challenging conditions. Whether the aim is to survive falls during tumultuous emergency treatment thanks to patented potting technology, to protect the patient with minimum leakage current of ≤10μA, or to secure the power supply with redundant systems and battery-operated backup solutions: FRIWO develops and manufactures reliable power supply units.
We thereby keep our focus on user safety and develop innovative concepts that make day-to-day medical life easier. For example, in the area of inductive charging technology – we already offer contactless energy solutions with power transmission of up to 150 W and simultaneous transmission of data. The use of inductive charging technology allows the development of medical devices with completely sealed housings – a huge advantage in sterile working environments!
FRIWO takes possible future changes to norms and increasing efficiency requirements into account in development and manufacturing, to ensure the seamless long-term marketing of your products. And FRIWO is a reliable partner for advice about legal requirements, such as the Medical Device Regulation (MDR). On request, we can use materials that ensure a high level of biocompatibility in our medical power supply units.
The official application of the Medical Device Regulation was postponed by one year due to the Corona Pandemic. Manufacturers of medical devices thus gain further valuable time to prepare for the implementation of the demanding directive. But what do companies need to know specifically about the inconspicuous power supply of their application in order to make a clean transition to the new regulations on May 26, 2021 and keep their approval on the market? And what should medical device manufacturers generally pay attention to when choosing their power supply? FRIWO, as an expert in medical power supply, will be happy to provide you with advice and support.

Certification according to ISO 13485, in particular, represents an additional quality commitment for medical technology, because the standard defines the regulatory requirements for comprehensive management systems at medical product manufacturers. As an internationally recognized norm, the standard includes guidelines for construction and development, production, installation, maintenance, and operation. This certification sets tough standards for exact compliance in every process step. There is a particular focus on risk management, as well as complete and consistent documentation; not only to minimize risk, but also to ensure optimum traceability of products and components.
