Our Mission

We are an innovative service and trading company with a customer-oriented and enthusiastic approach to develop niche markets within healthcare technology.

For around 25 years, MIDES has stood for top quality and state-of-the-art technologies in the preparation and repair of ultrasound probes and in the trade with ultrasound devices. With more than 15,000 spare parts for ultrasound devices, MIDES is able to supply exchange products within a very short period of time (“next-day service” on warehouse parts). The certified MIDES testing procedure, coupled with comprehensive know-how, guarantees the highest standard of quality.

Through the permanent expansion of the range of services, the company has developed into one of the largest providers on the European market.

The MIDES quality policy is oriented to the brand promise “Repairing instead of throwing away and buying anew”. With this sustainability principle, the Graz-based service company for medical ultrasound devices and probe repair has created a remarkable niche for itself on the global market over the last few years. Around 90 per cent of all probes are now repaired again. New solutions are permanently being developed in the company’s own laboratory.
