New Extra-Wide 2-Step Positioning Platform for Weight-Bearing Lateral X-Rays of Feet, Ankles and Lower Leg

October 5, 2012 — Clear Image Devices LLC (CiD) has announced the release of its newest product, the Extra-Wide 2-Step Platform for weight-bearing lateral X-rays of the feet, ankle and lower leg.

The Extra Wide 2-Step Platform enables imaging technicians to comfortably place large patients in the optimal position for the safe and easy capture of the highest quality weight-bearing images. This new platform, similar to the popular 19-inch-wide, 2-Step Platform, is a full 30 inches wide, with a weight capacity of 500 lbs. This wider platform with a safety grab bar has been an often-requested custom step platform for imaging centers treating bariatric patients. This step platform has models to fit all CR (computed radiography) and film cassettes as well as most portable DR (digital radiography) panels. It may also be used with a wall Bucky.

The Extra Wide 2-Step Platform is easily maneuverable, with built-in rollers and grab bars. Made of solid non-porous polyethylene, the platform is germ resistant and easy to keep clean.

CiD also offers a wide range of imaging panel protectors to safely position patients for standing feet, (AP) images as well as a pediatric positioning chair for use with infants through 4-year-olds.
