Mobile X-ray unit are moved around hospitals all the time to perform radiography on patients who cannot easily get to an X-ray room. What makes a system environment-friendly and easy-to-use? To address these issues, Canon Medical Systems has kept the basics in mind, while advancing the development of motor-driven, high-performance systems. Now, Canon Medical Systems has the answer in the IME-100L.
Large wheels and wheel-guided motion allow operators to overcome floor gradients with less manual force.
This step is easy to tread on, and has sufficient clearance above the floor. The safety design eliminates the risk of a foot being caught between the step and the floor, even in the wheel-guided setting.
A bumper the same width as the cart is provided at the front of the equipment, to alleviate the shock caused by possible collisions.
This allows you to confirm the position of the bumpers while the equipment is in motion, and helps in navigating narrow spaces.
A deadman-type brake is employed. If the handle is released, the brake will be applied automatically. A slight handle movement causes deceleration while in motion.
You can choose a brake-free condition. Thus, you can easily position the equipment while moving the main assembly.
A well-balanced, lock-free arm is employed. It eliminates time-consuming arm lock procedures for positioning, ensuring more speedy positioning.
These allow you to swivel and rotate the X-ray tube with less manual force.
Vertical rotation of X-ray tube
The X-ray tube can be rotated vertically by ±90º, and easily positioned for lateral-view radiography.
Swiveling of the X-ray tube
The X-ray tube assembly can be swiveled forward by -15º through +90º. Handgrip manipulation maintains the orientation of the X-ray port irrespective of the height of the arm.
Large 40-cm diameter wheels are employed. These are combined with free-castor-type front wheels to ensure quietness and ease of movement.
