The new standard for mobile X-ray systems.
Mobile X-ray systems 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, Toshiba has kept the basics in mind, while advancing the development of motor-driven, high-performance systems.
Now, Toshiba 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.
- Wheel step
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.
- Corner guide
This allows you to confirm the position of the bumpers while the equipment is in motion, and helps in navigating narrow spaces.
- Deadman-type brake
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.
- Brake elimination
You can choose a brake-free condition. Thus, you can easily position the equipment while moving the main assembly.
- Pantograph-type arm
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 wheels
Large 40-cm diameter wheels are employed. These are combined with free-castor-type front wheels to ensure quietness and ease of movement.
