To facilitate emergency X-ray examinations in mobile containers and trucks, an X-ray system must fulfill two basic characteristics: It needs to be as compact as possible, and as versatile as possible. Our X-DRS Floor Z-Arm Manual X-ray swivel bracket system was developed specifically as a space-saving X-ray solution with these factors in mind. It is especially useful for the handling of emergency and intensive care patients who can only be examined radiologically while lying down.
This tried and tested, fully-mechanical X-ray system not only offers the functionality of the X-DRS Floor U-Arm Manual system, but can also be used to acquire lateral X-ray images in the recumbent position. To achieve this, the patient table is pushed through the Z-shaped opening of the cross arm in front of the bucky tray. The classic application of the Z-Arm is for lateral X-ray thorax imaging of the recumbent intensive care and trauma patients.
