Pigg-O-Stat Immobilizer

 

The new PediaGraph Immobilizer (PGI) has received high marks after being field-tested at Le Bonheur Children's Medical Center. Many of the incorporated new features are the result of welcome suggestions from the professionals who actually used our previous immobilizer model on a daily basis. As infants don't understand the radiographic examination process, the fast-positioning and easy-adjusting features save time and tempers.

 


  • The PediaGraph Immobilizer incorporates new ergonomic engineering features for operational ease and patient comfort

  • The new PGI is safe for medical personnel-the radiation exposure hazard is completely eliminated
