201.1 Scope, object and related standards Clause 1 of EN 60601-1:2006, Medical electrical equipment - Part 1: General requirements for basic safety and essential performance, applies, except as follows: 201.1.1 * Scope Replacement: This Standard applies to the BASIC SAFETY and ESSENTIAL PERFORMANCE of MEDICAL BEDS, hereafter referred to as MEDICAL BEDS as defined in 201.3.218, intended for CHILDREN as defined in 201.3.207, and ADULTS with atypical anatomy (ADULTS ranging outside the definition for ADULTS in 201.3.201). This standard applies to medical beds with nonadjustable and electrical / mechanical adjustable functions. This Standard applies to MEDICAL BEDS with an internal length of up to 180 cm suitable to a body length of 155 cm. NOTE 1 The limitation of 180 cm is in order to minimize the foreseeable misuse, of a parent sharing the bed with the child or that the bed will be used by an ADULT. If a manufacturer wishes to make a bed that can be used by both a child and an ADULT, e.g. length of 180 cm or more, then it will fulfil both EN 60601-2-52 and this particular standard. This Standard does not apply to MEDICAL BEDS intended for ADULTS as defined in 201.3.201 (covered by EN 60601-2-52). This Standard does not apply to : - incubators covered by EN 60601-2-19 ; - beds for children, covered by EN 716-1 and EN 716-2 ; - cribs and cradles covered by EN 1130 (all parts) ; - bunk beds and high beds, covered by EN 747-1 and 747-2. If a clause or subclause is specifically intended to be applicable to a MEDICAL BED only, or to ME SYSTEMS only, the title and content of that clause or subclause will say so. If that is not the case, the clause or subclause applies both to MEDICAL BEDS and to ME SYSTEMS, as relevant. HAZARDS inherent in the intended physiological function of MEDICAL BED or ME SYSTEMS within the scope of this standard are not covered by specific requirements in this standard except in 7.2.13 and 8.4.1 of EN 60601-1:2006. NOTE 2 See also 4.2 of EN 60601-1:2006. NOTE 3 Body length is measured from crown to sole.
