TransAmerican Medical Imaging (TMI) today announced the release of a new design Spectre wireless foot switch and hand switch system for GE-OEC Series 9800 and 9900 mobile C-Arms.

TransAmerican Medical Imaging (TMI) announced the release of a new design Spectre wireless foot switch and hand switch system for GE-OEC Series 9800 and 9900 mobile C-Arms.

“The new design of the TMI Spectre will be familiar to those who are replacing the hard-wired hand and foot switches on their OEC C-Arms” according to TMI’s President, Bob Woodward. “Our new wireless foot switch and hand switch duplicate the physical layout of the original GE-OEC 9800™ and 9900™ systems while adding the “save” function to the wireless foot switch.”

The TMI Spectre eliminates the most common problems found with wired controls: dirty and hard-to-clean cables on the floor, broken cables and it allows OR staff to operate a system from any convenient position near the X-Ray source. Since cables on the floor are also a tripping hazard, this new wireless technology is an effective safety improvement.

The Spectre wireless foot switch and hand switch will operate within a radius of 50 feet from the 9800™ or 9900™ system. Since it is not infra-red based, it does not have to be in line of sight from the C-Arm. It will also operate for 20 consecutive hours without recharging. Recharging takes only 2-4 hours.

“This project has been 6 years in the making. With UL, FDA and other required certifications completed, we are now ready to introduce our newly designed wireless system to the radiological world.”

Paired using State-of-the-Art encryption technology, Spectre wireless switches “talk” only to the receiver with which they are mated, and will not interfere with other facility electronics.

“Installation is also easy,” said Mr. Woodward. “Simply unplug your foot or hand switch from your C-Arm, and insert the Spectre’s receiver connector into the hand switch socket on the C-Arm. Your Spectre wireless switch is ready to use.”

Both the foot and hand switch are ergonomically designed to reduce operator fatigue and are easy to clean and decontaminate.

TransAmerican Medical Imaging is a supplier of the highest quality, pre-owned and re-manufactured Philips and GE-OEC parts and systems.
