Biodex Introduces Ultrasound Table Line Designed for Sonographer Comfort, Safety

January 8, 2014 — Biodex Medical Systems Inc. introduced its line of ultrasound tables, which feature redesigned optional side rails that tuck underneath the table when not in use to allow clear access to the tabletop. The railes are mounted flush to the table, eliminating discomfort and reducing the reach required by the sonographer. In the past, the rails would extend 1.5 inches from the table — enough to cause the sonographer to be further away from the patient than was a comfortable distance to perform the scan. With the flush rails, the sonographer does not have to overstretch to achieve a quality image.
 
A new cardiac scanning cushion has been redesigned to drop down and release from either side of the table with nothing protruding. This cutout has been increased in size, providing open access to the left thorax area for an unobstructed apical approach.
 
Improved Fowler positioning accommodates natural body extension and sitting position. It is adjustable up to 80 degrees. In some previous designs, the motorized Fowler back pushed the patient forward causing the sonographer to reposition the patient, which could lead to sonographer injury if the respositioning required the sonographer to lift the patient. This has been reduced in the new design.
 
In addition, there are newly designed options further enhancing the ergonomics of the tables.  The headrest extends down to 15 degrees and is ideal for carotid and thyroid procedures. It allows for greater neck extension and easier thyroid and carotid access. An Articulating Scanning Arm Board adjusts from up to 130 degrees and locks every 10 degrees.
