Meridian Paragon TRUE-20

Conventional Analog Mobile X-ray System

Precise Positioning, Uncompromised Performance: High Frequency Mobile X-Ray System

Turn the key, press the drive handle and you’re off! The smooth maneuvering Meridian Paragon TRUE Mobile drive system consists of two (2) independent drive motors, one for each wheel, making quick work of daily examinations. At bedside the Meridian Paragon TRUE Mobile X-ray System is both versatile and flexible. Its “All Free” and inch-creeper buttons provide smooth, precise control, and the long horizontal extension arm allows for easy positioning in any tight place.

Available in four versions:

TRUE-20:  200mA
TRUE-32:  320mA
TRUE-40:  400mA
TRUE-50:  500mA
