Medical equipment requires the utmost care and attention in custom case design for two main primary reasons: the contents can be lifesaving, and they can be extremely expensive.
There is a possibility that your medical case could carry multi-thousand dollar equipment that requires optimal protection to keep it in perfect working order. As a result, medical cases are often a vital part of a medical team’s equipment.
Custom medical cases can carry a wide variety of medical equipment, supplies, and related items. The contents could include delicate electronic equipment, including everything from wearable defibrillators to AEDs.
Hundreds of millions of dollars are spent on medical devices in the U.S.; hospitals alone spend an average of $11.9 million on equipment and supplies each year. Protecting even a small portion of this equipment can help to reduce the need for repairs and replacements and ensure that patients have the devices that they need, in working order, when they need them.
Customizing your medical case provides the maximum protection and ensures that they are in working order when they are needed. This is particularly important in certain situations. For instance, when patients need to take home medical devices designed to be mobile, like an oxygen concentrator, they not only need that equipment to be protected from damage, so that it’s always in working order but also need a case that allows it to be easily portable and used while in the case. A suitable custom case will also ensure your medical equipment stays safe and promotes ease of use for patient users.
Custom cases can also help protect key emergency devices, such as an AED designed to be used by a bystander in a public place or emergency devices that need to be easily accessible to EMTs.
Using standard cases or travel store luggage can be a risky solution for caring for delicate, expensive, patient devices and emergency equipment. A poor-fitting case can cause damage to its contents, as well as make it easier to lose important parts and components.
With so much at stake, it’s important to ensure your medical equipment gets the best in protection and portability by utilizing some or all the following features:
A custom medical case makes it easy to choose the features you need and provides added protection with netting, straps, anti-static interior foam, adjustable trays, and organization compartments.
Despite the significant advantages of designing your own medical carrying cases, many companies avoid doing so out of a lack of understanding of the process. However, working with the right company can make the process a breeze, and ensure that your custom cases accommodate your customers’ needs and requests.

In many situations, the biggest challenge in custom case design is finding a balance between stability and space. Deciding whether or not you’ll need to add a foam insert early in the process will allow you to leave room for it, without sacrificing the space you need for any equipment and supplies.
Well-designed cases will enhance the perceived value of your product as well improving the customer experience when using your device.
For instance, the design of a case that holds an AED should accommodate all the necessary paraphernalia and make it more readily accessible in an emergency. The design of a patient device can help to make it more portable, which in turn can help give that patient back some of the freedom they may have lost as the result of an injury or illness.
