ultraMEDIC successfully certified according to DIN EN ISO 13485:2016.

ISO 13485, based on the structure of ISO 9001, includes specific requirements for the field of "medical devices". This pioneering standard in healthcare specifies the requirements that manufacturers and suppliers of medical devices must meet in order to develop, implement and maintain a quality management system. It takes into account the high standards for products, devices and systems used in patient care. The current "Medical Device Regulation (EU) 2017/745" (MDR) harmonizes with the ISO 13485:2016 standard.

In recent months, we have successfully adapted ultraMEDIC's quality management system to the requirements of ISO 13485. After a positive audit by TÜV HESSEN we have now received the certification according to DIN ISO EN 13485:2016.

This award is both a recognition and a motivation for us to continue to meet the highest requirements for quality and patient safety.

Our history

Today's SKYLOTEC GmbH and ultraMEDIC GmbH have their origins in the renowned Eduard Kaufmann GmbH, a well-known expert in rescue and emergency in Germany with over 50 years of experience.

Eduard Kaufmann GmbH was a pioneer in the development and manufacture of grinding baskets for mine rescue, first aid equipment and safety harnesses for mining.

The advancing technology, various testing requirements as well as the entry into the wind energy sector led to first structural measures within Eduard Kaufmann GmbH in 2003, where the "First Aid and Ambulance" division was continued as an independent company. Today's ultraMEDIC GmbH was created with own CI. In the following years, ultraMEDIC was able to position itself consistently as a leading manufacturer of high-quality stretchers with the coveted "Made in Germany" seal of quality.

As times have changed, we have expanded our expertise and commitment to the field of rescue stretchers and rescue equipment. In doing so, we have maintained our in-depth knowledge of safety and quality and applied it to the development of innovative solutions for rescue services and other sectors. Today, we are proud to be a modern and forward-thinking company dedicated to the safety and rescue of people. Our focus is on developing world-class products that meet the highest standards and can save lives. The experience and heritage of Eduard Kaufmann GmbH continues to be the foundation for our success and our vision to make emergency situations a safer place.
