To protect the health and safety of patients, we don't recommend the use of
standard/generic wires and cables in the medical equipment, unless the applications don't have to
meet any Special hygiene demand.
As same as the structure of generic cables used in other industries, medical cables are composed
of individual wires that are bundled into a unit with a connector at least at one end. However,
due to special requirements, including lumens, biocompatibility, and multiple autoclaving
procedures, medical cables must be given the features of lower surface friction, mechanical
durability, noodles-like flexibility, and has certain resistance for high-temperature and
Besides, medical cables must comply with specific safety specifications and
regulations, such as EN ISO 10993-1 biomedical standard and FDA 21 CFR 820.30 medical certification,
etc. In the manufacturing processing, to ensure that medical equipment can always operate correctly,
manufacturers must take more care when manufacturing cable assemblies for medical and healthcare
applications. Manufacturers usually deploy detailed inspection procedures at various stages, such as
electrical testing to reduce the probability of damage to the medical cable caused by the wiring
configuration and intermittent connections.
