Rigel Medical’s new Rigel 288+ downloader mobile app for iOS devices lets biomedical device engineers download and manage electrical safety test data.

The app is part of a digital toolkit used to support the 288+, an electrical safety analyser designed to perform routine field tests on medical electrical equipment. The tests play a critical role in revealing faults with medical equipment in hospitals and healthcare facilities, highlighting any compliance issues and improving patient safety.

Data downloaded directly from the Rigel 288+ via Bluetooth connection to mobile devices can be stored and managed, reducing the time it takes to transfer and store completed test records on asset maintenance software, as part of a planned preventive maintenance schedule.

Available in English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish and Turkish, the app also allows company logos and other details with personal signatures, to appear on individual engineer reports for secure identification. Single test results, multiple results, or all results can also be added to these reports by selecting the relevant checkbox, which can then be viewed and forwarded to databases in PDF and/or CSV formats.

“The paperless nature of the app means engineers can easily transfer their records online on the move and store them on databases, as opposed to printing them off,” said Michael Walton, category manager at Rigel Medical. This is a great time saving advantage for busy biomed equipment test teams, enabling them to complete maintenance schedules even quicker and ever more efficiently.”
