The importance of aseismic capability were due to not only the buildings but also the non-structures. Therefore, the non-structures which attached to the building were considered in the prevailing Taiwan Seismic Codes. In addition, the hospitals were one of the important building in the numerous types of architecture, and increasing the aseismic capability of the non-structure components which attached to the hospital could reduce the damage. However, the medical freezer and several equipment of hospital were slipped and overturned in the Hualien Earthquake (20180206). To resolve the phenomenon, the Medical Freezer (MF) was conducted as the main test specimen, and the magnetic connection (MCN) was installed on its base to test the response in different time history (near fault, far field and the top recording on the hospital) in order to verify the validity and rationality of formula. According to the final results of this study, the MCN were slipped when the earthquake PGA exceeded 0.4g, however, the MF was resetting favorably due to the normal force of magnetic which were installed in the MCN and the spring on corner of the plate also provide effective constraint to avoid it slipping down. Compared with the MF which excluded the MCN, the final results might be a reference for further research.
