Features and Benefits

SHARP FM

Four-way Floating Table

The heavy-duty electric table is a steel structure that supports patients up to 700 pounds, with a welded base for maximum strength and durability.

The four-way floating top guides effortlessly in all directions. Effortless foot action and treadle release locks the table in place and releases with ease.

120/230-240VAC power is ideal for single-phase electric.

Elevating Table Upgrade

Four-way float top functionality is available in an elevating table.

A four-point lift system depends on a quiet rack and pinion motor to distribute lifting power equally to four precise locations and delivers strength to support patients up to 800 pounds.

The table lowers to 22 inches off the floor for easy transfers.

Versatility in the Bucky Wall Stand

The stand travels vertically up to 84 inches, with a low central beam height of 15.5 inches. Vertical movements are manual. Fail Safe locks make patient safety a priority. The Bucky includes side-mounted and overhead patient hand grips for support. Grip options are available.

An ergonomic release handle makes system operation easy, and the cable concealment system makes for a safe and aesthetically pleasing room.

The 17” x 17” cabinet houses the system’s powerful Max Slim digital detector.

Tilting Wall Stand Upgrade

A tilting wall stand can expand your capabilities.

The receptor tilts to a range of +90o/-20o, with smooth counterbalanced movements to manage angles with ease. Patient grips are optional.

The Bucky stand has a vertical travel range of 15.5 inches to 71.1 inches, with ergonomic locks to assure safety.

Cabinet options include a standard cassette tray or a rotating cassette tray. You can even have a 17” x 17” fixed detector mounted inside the cabinet.

Floor-mounted Tube Stand

The tube mounts to the floor with a standard 10-foot floor plate. Optional 8-foot and 12-foot plates are available.

It travels along 10-foot rails and has full 11-inch transverse travel that delivers full coverage of the system’s tabletop. Minimum focal spot positioning at 11 inches is ideal for weight-bearing exams. The tube stand travels vertically up to 64.5 inches, longitudinally up to 94 inches, and transversally up to 11 inches. Electromagnetic braking assures safe vertical and longitudinal travel.

Column rotation of +/- 180 degrees delivers the versatility you’re looking for over a wide range of imaging needs. Collimation is manual.
