Maybe start here:

There's a contact page as well so maybe drop them an e-mail with your query.

I would guess that the electrical device would need to meet EU safety standards and what about different voltage possibilities.

Re: question about import product

It used to be very expensive to test electrical items. First a safety test was made and a certificate issued. Then an electrical and radiation test was made.

If you buy the product in Europe it will already be tested.

CE certification is the first obstacle. Most cheap Asian electronics has faked certificates which may pass through for private use, but are of no use if you want to commercialize the product. You need proper certification.

Then, since you say it's a healthcare product, you should most likely contact the authorities to find out what kind of additional certification may be needed. Just that you know, you are entering a highly protected market.

Other then that, you don't need a consultant. Relevant authorities are competent enough to point you in the right direction.

I would recommend you start your search here:
