Soma Tech Int’l, Inc. was founded in 1992 by two young biomedical entrepreneurs that identified a market need for high quality medical equipment at affordable prices and supplied by local company. The company was first located in a small office in Rocky Hill, CT, serving facilities in the central Connecticut area and employing only a handful of dedicated employees.
Just within 5 years, Soma Tech Int’l, Inc. had expanded its market reach to serve facilities around the New England area and developed enough customer relationships and brand awareness resulting to move to a new, larger facility in Cheshire, CT in 1996, where it could accommodate a larger inventory and more team members. This move allowed Soma to continue to expand its product line. By the late 90’s Soma had become a worldwide supplier of new and refurbished medical equipment setting the standards for the industry. In order to accommodate its resounding success, increasing demand, and a growing team, Soma Tech Int’l, Inc. relocated its headquarter to a brand new, state of the art facility in Bloomfield, CT, in 2008, where it houses the largest inventory of medical equipment in the industry.

One Stop Shop: Medical Equipment, Rental, Accessories & Parts, Service
Our extensive library of service manuals, large inventory of parts and highly trained, in-house biomedical engineers have allowed Soma Technology, Inc. to set the standard for technically refurbishing medical equipment.
First, there is decontamination and cleaning. An initial physical condition check. Oncethe unit is approved, it goes into the technical refurbishment stage. The batteries are replaced allowing for testing to begin. All of our biomeds are equipped with the latest testing equipment; all equipment parameters and conditions are functionally verified according to the manfucaturer’s specifications. At this stage, any and all parts or components that are not performing properly are replaced and repaired according to the guidelines set forth by the manufacturer.
Upon replacement of malfunctioning parts and components, the unit is then reassembled and it is ready to undergo further testing and calibration. At this point, all accessories, peripherals, and modules commonly used with the equipment are introduced, verifying overall operation and effectiveness.
The next step to assure the highest quality of our products is our complete cosmetic recondition process. At this point, every piece of equipment is inspected for any wear and tear. Units are then sanded, primed, and painted. We use the highest quality products in this process and all equipment is painted in our brand new AFC paint booth by factory trained staff. The result of this comprehensive process is a piece of equipment that is completely functional and free of all blemishes.
Finally, each unit undergoes rigorous quality assurance checks and only after satisfactory certified – it is packaged and shipped.
