Tailored Medical Solutions: Discover our Comprehensive Services for Various Medical Segments!

Rhenus simplifies demo pool management for medical device manufacturers. Whether it's smaller devices like ultrasound or endoscopes, or larger products like surgical microscopes or diagnostic devices, our specialised service handles the entire process.

From transport to practical use, we ensure efficient handling of demo devices for hospitals, rehabilitation clinics, and medical practices, allowing manufacturers to offer "try before you buy" opportunities to potential customers with ease.

Diagnostic imaging has become an integral part of today's medical technology. But how do the sensitive computer tomographs (CT), magnetic resonance tomographs (MRT) or even digital X-ray machines get into the radiology department of a hospital undamaged? Professional handling, special transport equipment and suitable vehicles are required to transport such large diagnostic devices.

We not only take care of the safe transport, but also of the floor protection, the positioning and the mechanical installation of these sensitive and demanding devices at the final point of use.

Among other things, we take on these services for a leading global supplier of systems for imaging diagnostics for its entire product range in many European countries.

As a trusted partner of leading dental specialist dealers, Rhenus simplifies the delivery process for dental equipment, devices, and practice furniture. We handle pre-collection from various suppliers, merge-in-transit at our locations, and ensure timely delivery to the final place of use. Our experienced team can also assist with unpacking and construction, if needed. By bundling delivery dates and accommodating customer preferences, we help dental practices save time, reduce disruptions, and streamline their procurement process.

With our Europe-wide delivery expertise and years of experience serving market leaders in the UK dental specialist trade, you can rely on us for efficient and reliable last-mile delivery.

Experts expect medical robots to revolutionise the healthcare sector. So that these highly specialised devices can be used, it is the task of specialists like us to ensure that they can be transported undamaged from the manufacturer to the operating room of a clinic.

For example, on behalf of a British medical technology company, we are taking on the transport and installation of a robot-assisted surgery system that was specially developed to achieve better treatment outcomes and responds to the needs of surgeons, patients and surgical teams. Accuracy, control, tact and depth perception enable more accurate interventions.

Amidst the increased demand for certified room air cleaners with HEPA filters due to COVID-19, Rhenus in the UK offers a comprehensive service portfolio. We not only provide delivery to the place of use, but also offer services such as filter replacement, assembly, commissioning, instruction in device use, and maintenance, including equipment testing and filter replacements. With expertise in coordinating appointments with authorities and facility operators, as well as providing suitable transport vehicles, we ensure a hassle-free experience for our customers in schools, day care centers, offices, and gastronomic establishments.

Surgical microscopes play a crucial role in various medical fields, including dental microsurgery, ophthalmic, and neurosurgery, providing precise treatment for patients. In addition to optical magnification, digital visualisation is also utilised.

Transporting surgical microscopes with visualisation systems can be challenging due to their weight and fragility. Rhenus in collaboration with our specialised team, handles project coordination, transport, delivery to the final location, positioning, installation, and demo pool management for manufacturers of large optical microscopes and instruments.

We specialise in the distribution and delivery of laboratory equipment for medical and pharmaceutical applications, including autoclaves, diagnostic devices, workstations, refrigerators, freezers, scales, mixers, and meters. Our high-tech transport network ensures safe delivery to the laboratory, where our trained and experienced specialists handle unpacking, positioning, and handover to technicians or end customers. Trust us for all your laboratory equipment and furnishing needs.
