Those testing the C-Arm table come from all corners of the industry; from clinical x-ray technicians to the foremost medical centers, Biodex tables are used in over 85 countries world wide. Biodex often partners with these facilities to test new products before going to market or to obtain feedback on how to improve an existing product. Recently, one of our C-Arm tables, sent out for trial testing, got lost and was later found on a shipping dock. While the events surrounding its misplacement remain fuzzy, one thing is for sure…record rainfall took place, the box the C-Arm was packaged in, all but disappeared and the table was over a thousand miles from returning home to Shirley. “The table was sent, as is, back to the Biodex facility where it was immediately assessed. Everyone in the warehouse, in quality assurance, that day feared the worst. The designers, however, were not at all surprised that it was in perfect working condition, despite days spent in torrential rains outside, followed by an unprotected journey, by truck, back to New York,” explained Schubert.
How could a medical instrument, designed to have some of the most delicate procedures performed on it, with hundreds of moving parts, survive, undamaged? “The C-Arm table is designed to have a lower profile base, a proprietary control top designed in-house as well as a memory base system. There are some very good features found on this table that we really thought would be ruined after enduring this type of treatment, we were wrong.” The Biodex C-Arm table is a closed-system, with all the electrical parts enclosed in bellows, so under normal circumstances it is designed to keep out dust and dirt, extending its life cycle, making it one of the best values on the market. “Our closed-system design lets nothing in; apparently, not even water!”
Biodex serves the medical imaging market with an offering of tables and accessories to accommodate a broad range of needs and budgets. The C-Arm tables are used for a variety of imaging needs from urologic and cardiovascular procedures to pain management and ion implantation.

Each and every table can be enhanced through custom design with a host of accessories to choose from.
The story has a happy ending; the table was professionally cleaned and deemed fit for service and is in perfect working order, today.
