SAMSUNG XGEO GC80 is a design innovation for the most popular type of X-ray device. While other ceiling devices make a medical technologist raise his / her head and keep an eye on the carriage to confirm the movement, this product helps the technologist watch his / her patient and realize where the carriage is with sounds. The carefully designed table enables a patient in a wheelchair to have the test in a sitting position. Patients and technologists can follow the test progress thanks to the carriage's lights and position. Also, the carriage's integrated sensors prevent the moving part from hitting patients, consequently avoiding accidents.

Samsung has designed an X-ray device in a class of its own. All that remains to be said: with its simple, ergonomic design and absolute functionality, this product was immediately convincing.
