Refurbished C-Arms Guide

Refurbished c-arms are used for a range of diagnostic imaging and minimally invasive surgical procedures. Used C-arms, like people, come in different shapes and sizes. Below are the types of refurbished c-arms :

Mini C-Arms:

Mini C-arms, your more “petite” machines, are typically used in smaller facilities for sports medicine, orthopedic and podiatric imaging. They generally come with a 4″/6″ image intensifier. They are perfect for performing studies or scanning extremities, such as hands, feet, ankles, knees, elbows, and even shoulders. These used C-arms can be especially helpful during external reduction and fixation of fractures since the bone alignment can also be visualized in a non-invasive manner via real time.

Compact C-Arms:

Compact C-arms are larger than a Mini C-arm, but not as big as a Full-Size C-arm. It is more like a compact car. These compact used C-arms can come in either one-piece or two-piece systems, with the main benefit being its mobility. If you are tight for space, then this used c-arm is perfect for you.

Full Size C- Arms:

Full-Size Used C-arms tend to be the most sought-after model because it allows you to perform just about any type of procedure. It’s by far the most popular used C-arm style in the market today. These used C-arms are usually used for swallow tests, spine and torso studies, cardiology, pain management and surgery. By the way…did I mention pain management!? The open space in the regular, full-size used C-arm is 26 inches, making it large enough to fit a table and patient between the image intensifier and the tube. They can come with a 4.5″/6″/9″ Image Intensifier, and even a 12″ image intensifier, which can be useful for cardiology. A 12″ image intensifier gives you 70% more field of vision. Wow!

Super C C-Arms:

A Super C C-arm gives more space from the middle of the C-arm to the outer edge. The extra open space in a Super C (33 inches), allows for additional room to accommodate larger or obese patients.
