Mobile X-ray system with carbon nanotube technology
The CARESTREAM DRX-Revolution Nano Mobile X-ray system (pending FDA 510(k) clearance) uses carbon nanotube technology to deliver significantly reduced size and weight when compared to existing mobile X-ray systems. The new system is inaugurating the next generation of mobile X-ray systems that will offer important productivity and ergonomic advantages. The DRX-Revolution Nano system uses carbon nanotube technology in a lighter weight, non-motorized system that will be easy to move and position, even in cramped critical care areas. The new system is designed to include: carbon nanotube technology and an advanced lithium iron phosphate battery that contribute to longer life and a weight of approximately 200 pounds (90 Kg); a sleek design with enhanced visibility both over and around the system; a compact footprint that will make it easy to manoeuvre and position in tight spaces; and independent controls of the diaphragm without moving the tubehead.
