Battery-powered Portable X-ray Machine
Mikasa has developed a battery-powered portable X-ray machine.
"This product is the TRB9020H, a portable X-ray machine. It is Japan's first battery-powered portable X-ray machine. It does not require AC power and is capable of taking X-rays anywhere with its completely wireless setup. The most unique aspect of this device is that it is battery powered, yet despite running on batteries it is lightweight at 7 kg."
The device is capable of approximately 300 consecutive X-rays on a single charge, so it can be used in remote areas or in emergency circumstances when the power supply has been cut. The control panel also features a bright LED display that can be read easily outdoors.
"This unit has a list price of 1.8 million yen and has already received regulatory approval. We have shipped quite a number of these overseas. In Japan we have scheduled several demonstrations. We plan to market this primarily for at-home healthcare, disasters, and emergency medicine."
