The different biomedical engineering evaluation methodologies are forwarded to cuantify the physical, technical and functional state of the medical equipment and their clinical and economical environment basing specifically on the definition of variables on three evaluation realms: clinical, technical and economical. These evaluations hand over numerical values that warn about the relevance of keeping or dismissing the biomedical equipment on duty.

The following analyses on depth the results of two biomedical engineering evaluation methodologies designed by the Universidad Autónoma de Occidente and validated on several Health Service Institutions (IPS) of third level of attention and fourth in complexity. Both projects had as an objective to design protocols for the evaluation of the biomedical technology operative that can be applied to any type of biomedical equipment being presented also as a thesis degrees for the Biomedical Engineering Undergraduate Program.
