Adaptaid answers to Medical Device Reprocessing (MDR) requirements, primarily in the hospital sector, which have become more complex over the years.


There may be a number of different explanations, the first being, of course, the healthcare system's constant fight against nosocomial infections. Furthermore, there has been an increase in preventive medical examinations, particularly in light of an aging population, and the emergence of new and innovative treatment methods with more technically complex surgical instruments.



MDR involves all the steps of cleaning, disinfecting and sterilizing medical devices so they can be reused. A medical device is defined as any item, instrument, apparatus or device, along with all its components, used for diagnostic, treatment or healthcare purposes. Devices are classified according to the potential risk of infection posed by their use:

  • Critical devices (penetrate the skin or sterile tissue);

  • Semi-critical devices (touch the mucous membranes or non-intact skin without penetrating it);

  • Non-critical devices (do not touch the patient or only touch intact skin).
