Age-appropriate design of medical devices
Digestive tract diseases are a common and frequent disease, and the weakening of various body functions makes middle-aged and elderly people a group with a higher incidence of digestive tract diseases. In the diagnosis of digestive tract diseases in the middle-aged and elderly population, the conventional examination methods generally used are endoscopy, ultrasonography, barium X-ray imaging, etc.
Although there are advantages and disadvantages of different modalities, dynamic DR barium x-ray is the most suitable modality for the examination of digestive tract diseases in middle-aged and elderly people. Endoscopy was once known as the “gold standard” for clinical diagnosis of gastrointestinal mucosal diseases, but it is an invasive test for patients, especially not suitable for middle-aged and elderly people, while ultrasound examination cannot detect early gastric cancer. Dynamic DR, on the other hand, requires less physical condition for middle-aged and elderly people, and has many advantages such as wide application, clear imaging, convenient and efficient, and low side effects.
Perlove Medical multi-functional suspended dynamic DR has a 17×17-inch imaging area, when doing gastrointestinal imaging, for the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon and other large imaging areas, can be completed in one exposure; imaging process, can achieve millisecond dynamic and static image switching, 100μm high frame rate dynamic plate, 18 million pixels high-definition spot film, especially in the esophagogram advantages are obvious, can quickly capture the image of the lesion site, clear and rapid imaging, greatly enhance the detection rate of lesion examination, so that the diagnosis is more accurate.
At the same time, with real-time video image saving function, it is easy for doctors to repeatedly observe and analyze, clarify the scope of lesions, and avoid missed diagnosis and misdiagnosis. And the intelligent lift bed design facilitates the elderly with mobility problems to get in and out of bed, reducing the work burden of medical staff and optimizing the doctor-patient examination experience.
Middle-aged and elderly people are the key population in orthopedics, but the current situation of “backward hardware and equipment, lack of talents and examination items” makes some primary hospitals have more than enough capacity to deal with middle-aged and elderly patients with many kinds of basic diseases. Perlove Medical‘s multi-functional suspended dynamic DR not only facilitates gastrointestinal imaging examination for the elderly, but also has the functions of digital radiography, digital fluoroscopy, digital gastrointestinal imaging, visualization spot film, etc. It is a multi-functional machine with wide clinical application, which helps to expand the examination items in primary hospitals and clinics and improve the medical level.
The emergence of visualized dynamic DR provides a convenient and efficient way to examine the digestive tract diseases of middle-aged and elderly people, and also meets the deep demand of primary care. With the popularization of dynamic DR, it will help primary hospitals to solve the first consultation needs of many types of diseases and bring greater benefits to the diagnosis and treatment of middle-aged and elderly diseases.
