X-RAY CASSETTE COVERS / X-RAY COVERS
Hospital Direct’s X-Ray Plate Insertion Tube allows radiographers to easily insert x-ray cassettes with x-ray cassette covers.
Radiographers who have difficulty inserting x-ray cassettes and digital image panels behind/underneath patients now have access to an easy solution. Our X-Ray Plate Insertion Tube allows a radiographer to slot an x-ray plate holder behind a patient with the help of just one member of staff. This proves especially useful in busy environments, like intensive and critical care units.
The X-Ray Plate Insertion Tube is an integral part of the X-Ray Insertion System, which also comprises a Quilted X-Ray Cassette Cover and a pair of Deluxe Extension Straps. Care staff can use the system to prepare a patient for an x-ray without having to log roll or sit the patient forward. This means patients can remain comfortable and practitioners can minimise the risk of straining themselves.
We supply the X-Ray Plate Insertion System in two sizes to fit both cassettes and the newer digital detectors. The tubes are patient-specific so practitioners can dispose of the equipment between procedures and increase patient throughput. However, we also stock washable variations.
We manufacture the X-Ray Plate Insertion Tubes in our Shropshire premises, where we ensure consistent attention to detail, independently test hospital supplies and ship across the UK. For more information about the X-Ray Plate Insertion Tube, please get in touch with our Technical Team. We will be delighted to help.
