The requirement was to redesign Xstrahl’s superficial orthovoltage medical X-Ray system. The need was to design a new imaging head system to be far easier for the user to manage and manipulate, whilst also reducing cost.
Maddison devised a concept using an electro-mechanical braking system operated by a single hand trigger to provide smooth, multi-axis movement with one hand.
Maddison completed both the industrial design and engineering for the head unit, built and assembled the first prototypes to test. The result was an ergonomic treatment arm with simple to operate, smooth movement.
