FDF medical ergos get tick of approval from EU Medical Devices Directive

FDF is proud to announce that three of our upper body (UBE) ergometers have been officially classified as medical devices by the European Union’s (EU) Medical Devices Directive (MDD).

The Medical Devices Directive upholds strict guidelines regarding what it means to be a “medical device” in which our Evolution UBE models E520, E720 Cycle XT and E920 have met essential requirements of safety, performance and labelling as required under EU MDD standard 93/42/EWG.

A medical device according the MDD is an instrument, apparatus, appliance, material or other article that is used specifically for diagnostic and/or therapeutic purposes. It is this and many other criteria that our selected products fit so well in.

“FDF’s range of upper body ergometers are trusted by the medical industry worldwide. Our unique patented variable fluid technology supports the rehabilitation process building upper body strength and cardio fitness while isolating any strain on the lower body and removing barriers to exercise such as age and fitness level,” commented Nick Driscoll, General Manager – FDF.

“At FDF our innovation is driven by real life movement – this certification is a true credit to the hard work and determination of our design engineers who are committed to creating fitness products that genuinely assist with the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of physical rehabilitation,” Driscoll concluded.

FDF manufactures fitness equipment to the highest international industry standards and maintains stringent quality management systems. FDF is one of the first manufacturers to be awarded certification in compliance with the MDD for its range of upper body ergometers.
