MDR (EU) 2017/745

Clearance certificate/ Biocompatibility

The declaration of conformity also serves as a clearance certificate, as the MDR requires proof of biocompatibility for all materials that come into direct or indirect contact with patients or users.

MDR, Appendix I, Paragraph10.2:

Devices shall be designed, manufactured and packaged in such a way as to minimize the risks posed by contaminants and residues to patients - taking into account the intended purpose of the device - and to transport, storage and operating personnel. Special attention is paid to tissues exposed to these contaminants and residues, as well as to the duration and frequency of exposure.

Reuse of beds from KayserBetten

KayserBetten beds provided before 26.05.2021 can be used again without restriction after professional "reprocessing" by cleaning, disinfection, as well as testing and restoration of the technical and functional safety.


The so-called "sell-off provision" (Art. 120(4) MDR) is intended to limit the period during which MDD-compliant products that were already placed on the market (for the first time) before 26.05.2021 may be made available, e.g. by a distributor.

After 27 May 2025, these products may no longer be made available/put into service. Such products that are still in the commercial chain on that day - i.e. have not yet been made available to the end user (e.g. institution, family) as a ready-to-use product - are no longer "tradable".

Trade in used products is not covered by the so-called "sell-off" rule (see MDR recital 3 *). This means that once a product has been made available to the end user (e.g. institution, family) as a ready-to-use product, the further making available of this product on the market does not fall under the scope of the MDR.

* MDR, Legal Notice, Recital 3: "This Regulation is not intended to harmonise rules concerning the continued making available on the market of medical devices that have already been put into service, for example in connection with the sale of used devices."

Lifetime and spare parts guarantee


The expected service life of care beds is generally stated to be between 2 and 10 years.

The expected service life of beds from KayserBetten is 5 years when used as intended and is due to the fact that children's care beds are usually exposed to high loads.
Conditions of use and frequency of use can reduce the service life.

Spare part guarantee

We guarantee the supply of spare parts for the expected service life.
This availability is limited to parts which, according to experience, are subject to wear within the normal service life of KayserBeds. The guarantee of availability does not apply to other parts which exceed the service life of the beds from KayserBetten.
Technical changes also limit the availability period of spare parts, as our products are continuously developed to ensure that they always comply with the current state of the art and legal requirements when they are placed on the market. This results from our quality management and is a common procedure in the manufacture of medical products.

Maintenance and safety control

According to the MPBetreibV §7, operators of care beds are obliged to ensure the safe condition of the medical device over the entire period of use.

To ensure safe operation, a visual and functional inspection with electrical testing must be carried out at least once a year in accordance with DIN EN 62353.

The test according to DIN EN 62353 includes the following minimum requirement:

  • Visual inspection
  • Insulation resistance measurement
  • Leakage current measurement
  • Functional test
  • Overall evaluation
