Whitepaper: "How imaging modalities used in medicine...

...can benefit from floor-lock systems"


The importance of imaging modalities in medical diagnostics, such as CT, scintigraphy, SPECT and PET, is continually growing. 
Their main advantage: to look inside the human body without having to use invasive measures. They enable one to see the smallest of details in the patient’s body, enabling pathological changes to be identified. 
However, the meaningfulness of the examination results greatly depends on the quality of the images produced by the devices. Therefore, it is critical that the imaging devices are completely stable and secure and do not vibrate, even if the floor is uneven.
Due to the high cost pressures in the health sector, hospital managers are calling for an increase in flexibility and a higher device utilisation rate. As a result, these devices are becoming more and more mobile.
These two requirements – devices that are completely stable and secure, yet also mobile – are synthesized with the help of hydraulic floor-lock systems (the kind that have been in successful use in operating tables for decades), providing a simple, yet highly effective solution.
