It sounds strange that after 100 years of working in radiation shielding, and developing products for the MRI environment there is still something new – the ferrous free castor!
Since the launch of the Mark II MR safe adjustable height trolley, Wardray Premise Limited have constantly sought and sourced materials and components of the highest standard manufactured in accordance with their ISO9001:2008 and ISO13485:2003 procedures. Wardray’s development of the MR trolley range is something of a British manufacturing success.
With the increasing use of highly sensitive ferromagnetic detection systems in MRI facilities, such as the “Ferroguard” from Metrasens, the need for ferrous free components for patient transfer equipment is essential. As part of their drive for continuous product improvement, Wardray Premise worked with a castor manufacturer to develop a ferrous free castor. Wardray launched their ferrous free castor at Medica and RSNA exhibitions. The castor has the following features:
- Ferrous free components
- Single swivel wheel
- 125mm and 150mm dia, braked and unbraked
- Weight capacity 80kg
The introduction of the ferrous free castor is only one milestone and a number of other improvements to the MR safe trolley range are planned.
Wardray Premise is a leading manufacturer and supplier of accessories to MRI departments. Other MR safe products include portering chairs, patient monitors, examination lamps, utility trolleys, relax and view illuminated wall and ceiling panels and IV stands.
