Non-Metal Heavy Duty Casters Make Medical Cart MRI Safe

Non-Metal Heavy Duty Casters Make Medical Cart MRI Safe

Not all medical carts are able to be used in MRI suites. MRI machines create intense magnetic waves that attracts all metal inside the room from paper clips to metal chairs.

This means that any medical equipment safe for use in an MRI suite must not contain metal or be at risk to suddenly, and surprisingly, fly toward the MRI machine.

Because some support equipment and medical supplies are needed in the room, a solid medical cart that doesn’t include metal is a useful item.

That led MEC Systems to develop a medical cart for MRI suites that uses non-metal, high quality casters that allow for easy rolling across the floor.

Our MRI safe medical carts have been custom designed and built to order before being shipping to their final destination.

What makes a medical cart safe for use with MRI machines is that they don’t contain metal, as the MRI machine uses intense magnetic waves in its process.

The waves attract metal in the way imagined, with increasing force the closer the object. The object can hit a person on its way to the MRI Machine, or can shift and move metal items inside a person such as a pin left in a bone, or an embedded medical device with metal.

The former problem can be readily solved by ensuring there is no metal in the same room as the machine. That may seem simple, but for an “>MRI safe medical cart there is one hindrance … caster wheels.

Cabinets, Shelves More Easily Solved Than Medical Carts

Quality, impervious medical cabinets and lab spaces are readily available for hospital and clinics, but finding similar equipment for movable items such as chairs and medical carts may be more difficult.

The main reason is the casters, or the wheels on the movable cart. They snap in place, allowing them to spin and move in any direction.

The dual-wheel casters provide stability for the cart, but finding that strength and uniformity without metal has been the challenge.
