Hi-tech x-ray manufacturer Micro-X has launched its next generation Rover mobile DR x-ray, incorporating both an in-house designed and manufactured generator and an extended capability x-ray tube.

The Rover Plus delivers significant customer benefits, adding greater imaging capability from an increase in x-ray output to the first generation Rover’s smaller size and enhanced manoeuvrability. This increased output makes the Rover ideal for specialised imaging needs in emergency departments, operating theatres and military deployed hospitals.

The Rover Plus includes an in-house designed and manufactured high-powered generator, moving from a third-party supplied generator.

Managing director Peter Rowland said the launch of the Rover Plus was the culmination of many months of innovation and hard work from the company’s technical and regulatory teams.

“We are excited to ramp up our marketing and outreach activities to our customers and believe that our Mobile DR range offers compelling product features at competitive pricing,” Mr Rowland said.

“This is another demonstration of Micro-X’s dedication to continuous innovation across its technologies and product solutions.”

First orders have already been received from DMS in France and Israeli distributor Inframed.
