In every type of facility, from a retail shop, to an office, to an imaging center, there has always been a problem with building space: it's much easier to fill it than it is to acquire. Visitor reception, staff work areas, storage, equipment, a bit of countertop for the coffee urn- all of it takes up space, and that space costs money.
The economy of space is precisely the problem the engineers at Control-X had in mind when they developed the Z-Motion U-Arm X-Ray system. If you work at an imaging facility where it's crucial to be space-conscious, read on to find out just how compact and functional the Z-Motion is.
Z-Motion Ceiling Height
For a system based around a vertical column, the design of the U-arm is deceptively low-clearance. A space can have a ceiling as low as 7' 10" and still accommodate the Z-Motion's full range of movement.
Z-Motion Floor Size
A Z-Motion U-arm can operate in rooms as small as 9' x 9'. If you plan to perform studies that will require patients to lay down, you'll want a wider room of 9' x 12' to accommodate movement and storage of a rolling table (Z-Table available).
Does it still do everything?
When a piece of equipment is so compact, the question often rises as to whether or not features or functions were left out to conserve space. In the case of the Z-Motion, the answer is no. Even with its compact design, the Z-Motion is able to perform any scan you would do on a larger, floor or ceiling-mounted system with a fixed table.
The Z-Motion U-Arm proves that operating in a smaller space doesn't have to come at the expense of X-ray functionality and quality. If you need reliable X-ray imaging, but your building doesn't have much room to spare, the Z-Motion could be the perfect fit for both your clinical needs and your economical space.
