New X-ray Machine Handles Patients Up to 600 Pounds
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there has been a dramatic increase in obesity over the last two decades. With expanding waistlines also come increased health risks and more demand for bariatric surgery, gastric bypasses and lap bands.
Due to the lack of medical equipment designed to cater to their size, people who suffer from obesity often experience difficulty getting quality healthcare. In response to the increased size of patients, the medical industry is using innovation and technology to raise the standard of care. A new X-ray machine, the Axiom Luminos TF, can handle people weighing up to 600 pounds. Described as an X-ray video camera, it allows doctors to see what's going on inside the body in real time. It also has a larger gap between the table top and the tower - which shoots a much wider picture.
