Vintage medical equipment is just like any other equipment that is made at an earlier point in time. Usually, but not always, this equipment is made from higher quality parts and has a human touch to each product. Today's products are mass produced and computers control most of the functions.
In addition to being made better sometimes, their prices are often cheaper than today's expensive equipment. It depends on the equipment though. A highly sought after surgical table might bring a much higher cost than today's equipment. In order to get the right equipment at a good price, look at a few small details.
A good place to start looking for old equipment is on auction websites. They will have a lot of different items that you can see what they are going for and conditions of them. It is wiser to lease or finance this equipment, but seeing what they are going for is a good first step. It will also show you pictures of them. Older equipment does not always have photos on newer leasing websites.
Vintage equipment comes from all over. Some materials are made better in places other than the USA. German-made products are often some of the highest quality tools that can be used. It would be wise to test out different products from different countries to see which ones will work best for your medical facility.
To test out different equipment, try to get a leasing plan. This will allow you to rent different ones and finally decide on one. If you do not know where to start, you can start by asking your dealer to recommend dealers in that niche or going to LeaseQ and getting a free instant quote.

Financing should be used if leasing is not a good option for you at the time. It all depends on how much equipment is needed and the cost of that equipment. If a lot of older tools are needed, financing is the best way. If you find out that it is not exactly what you had in mind, you can return the equipment at the end of the lease or make a final payment such as a $1 buyout at the end of the lease.
