Avoid These Common Medical Case Mistakes!


Getting the right custom medical case is easy when you know what to look for.

The value and necessity of having custom cases for your medical equipment can’t be overstated. The last thing you need – or can afford – when you’re on an ambulance or taking a helicopter is to have to worry about whether the equipment in your cases is broken or damaged.

It is abundantly true, however, that people tend to make mistakes when choosing their medical cases. When you’re in the market for new cases, avoid these common errors and make sure you have the right items.

Don’t Sacrifice Quality for Low Cost

The old adage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” holds especially true with medical equipment. While it’s understandable that people eschew customization for lower costs, doing so carries tremendous risks. When you fail to have the proper custom cases, you risk disaster, which will carry a long-term cost far greater than the few extra dollars you may spend. The quality of your case may mean the difference between saving a life or losing a patient.

Don’t Assume Ideal Conditions

Shockingly, many people fail to account for less-than-perfect conditions when choosing a medical case, as though they’ve never been plagued by potholes, careless drivers, turbulent weather conditions or any of the other potential pitfalls involved with moving medical equipment. The smart buyer will keep many factors in mind when choosing their medical cases, including:

  • Stacking
  • Altitude changes
  • Collisions with vehicles
  • Collisions with other cases
  • Bad Weather
  • Poor Handling
  • Chemical Exposure
  • Water Exposure

Always Get the Right Materials

Plastic and wood seem like safe materials, right? Actually, they’re about the worst materials you could buy. Cases made of aluminum and foam are far superior and should always be given preference. Aluminum is understood is water resistant and considerable less prone to damage and weathering. Foam allows you to form customizable inserts for your case and to feature an additional layer of protection for your instrumentation.
