This International Standard specifies basic requirements to ensure compatibility between rail systems complying with this International Standard and medical equipment in order to facilitate the transfer of medical equipment from one rail system to another. The specifications for rail systems include dimensions, strength and information to be supplied by the manufacturer.
This International Standard applies only to rail systems intended to be mounted horizontally.
This International Standard does not specify either the structures to which a rail system can be attached or the types of medical equipment that can be supported.
This International Standard does not apply to overhead rail systems for supporting curtains and infusion devices.
NOTE 1 Some medical equipment can be attached to the rail by means that are outside the scope of this International Standard.
NOTE 2 It is expected that particular standards will be prepared to cover applications for which the rail systems specified in this International Standard are unsuitable.
