Ergonomics & Injury Prevention

Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSDs) are all too common in sonography. Biodex™ ultrasound tables are designed to minimize injury and maximize comfort without sacrificing image quality during ultrasound, echocardiography and vascular procedures.

Quality imaging in a safe, comfortable environment.

Our ultrasound tables provide exceptional ergonomics to prevent injury and enable sonographers to do their job safely, efficiently and accurately.

The Cost of WRMSDs

Research indicates that 90% of sonographers experience symptoms of WRMSDs at some point in their career. When gone unaddressed, these injuries can take a significant toll on both staff and employers.
