Equipment Sales & Rentals

ALTHEA’s ISO13485-certified pre-owned equipment sales and rental service is designed to provide a cost effective alternative to buying new equipment – from endoscopes to CT scanners; ultrasound probes to MR coils.  We will also maximise the value of your redundant technology by offering market-leading prices and full equipment de-installation services.

Equipment Sales & Rentals

We understand the pressure that every hospital faces to generate income and find alternative solutions to buying new equipment.  We can therefore purchase your old equipment to maximise its residual value as well as provide new or refurbished equipment and spare parts through our ISO-accredited services.

Buying Your Redundant Equipment

We recognise the importance of ongoing investment to maintain an up to date rental service and we are always exploring the market for opportunities to purchase diagnostic imaging, endoscopy and biomed systems.

Our service delivers strong financial returns and removes the complexity and risk associated with the disposal of redundant medical equipment.  Outside of our rental fleet we have established the experience and contacts required to generate resale prices above the market average – ensuring you generate maximum return on your redundant equipment, without any retained liability.
