When you purchase a piece of capital equipment it is an investment. An investment you hope will bring revenue in and pay for itself many times over. When making a purchase investment in a piece of equipment you need to do your due diligence first. Investigate the product, its manufacturer and their customers to determine if this is the purchasing path you should take.
Does the product have the features that make the most sense for its intended use? Does it meet the guidelines of use set forth by the staff using it? Does the product have features you are paying for that will not be used? The C-arm table product line from Biodex has many different models to choose from. This gives the purchaser the opportunity to select the right table for the job. You don't want to over pay for features not necessary or miss features that are critical to its use. Don't just look at the obvious features, such as table movements and patient capacity. Look at the construction features; remember this is a long-term investment. >>
