What we do

What is Remanufacturing?

“Remanufacturing (also known as reprocessing) is a process carried out on a medical device in order to allow its safe reuse, including cleaning, disinfection, sterilisation and related procedures, as well as testing and restoring the technical and functional safety of the devices.” (cf. Definition EU MDR 2017/745/EU)


Commercial remanufacturing of single use devices offers a solution to hospitals and healthcare systems to provide safe and effective patient care while lowering medical waste and reducing the cost of waste disposal.


Working with hospitals, surgical centres and healthcare systems, Vanguard collects used devices. These devices are then disassembled, cleaned, function-tested, repackaged and sterilised. Remanufactured devices meet or exceed the standards of the original manufacturer and are 100% traceable to enable quality control and accountability.
