Flexible Movement ensures Smooth Examinations
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.
Wheel-guided motion: large wheels and wheel-guided motion allow operators to overcome floor gradients with less manual force.
Bumper: a bumper the same width as the cart is provided at the front of the equipment, to alleviate the shock caused by possible collisions.
Deadman-type brake: a deadman-type brake is employed. If the handle is released, the brake will be applied automatically.
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.
Large wheels: large 40-cm diameter wheels are employed. These are combined with free-castor-type front wheels to ensure quietness and ease of movement.
