Production / Quality
The implants and surgical instruments and tools designed by Aequos are manufactured by companies accredited as medical product suppliers with long-standing experience in the field. Aequos provides the construction designs, technical specifications and tolerances and is responsible for quality control. The partner companies and subcontractors have to meet high quality standards regarding their personnel, production facilities and measurement instruments. Since Aequos´ joints are designed to recapitulate natural biomechanics, it is of the utmost importance that the natural dimensions are closely adhered to during production. This high stringency in the manufacturing process requires the use of ultra-high precision CNC milling machines and measurement instruments.
Aequos Endoprothetik GmbH is certified according to DIN ISO 13485. All products are in compliance with the 93/42/EWG directive and bear the CE label. The certification was carried out by DEKRA-Intertek Stuttgart. In addition, the Aequos G1 knee prosthesis has FDA approval.
