NOMAD Replacing Wall Mounts, 14,000 X-rays Now in Use Worldwide

Already-Innovative and Game-Changing Technology Continues to Disrupt Older X-ray Methods

OREM, Utah, Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NOMAD, worldwide leader in handheld X-ray technologies and manufacturer of the NOMAD® Pro 2 X-ray system, today celebrated the milestone of 14,000 systems now in use worldwide. After only a short eight years in business, the company is pleased to see another marked indicator that the dental world is graduating towards the sophisticated technology.

Dental practitioners are discovering that they can upgrade to a NOMAD, in replacement of more than one wall mount. These devices offer every dental practitioner the opportunity to experience improved workflow, reduced downtime, and more flexibility in their practice.

"NOMAD is the smartest investment a dentist can make if he or she needs to replace a wall mount X-ray machine," said Ken Kaufman, general manager of NOMAD. "Our latest model, the Pro 2, easily performs the job of two or three wall mounts, and serves as a backup if any other X-ray machines go down. It saves time and money, and ensures a dental practice is seeing as many patients as possible."

With the steady adoption of this iconic handheld system by NOMAD and a trend toward replacing traditional wall mounts, the U.S. dental market is ready to experiencing a paradigm shift.

According to Health Physics journal, August 2012, "The benefits associated with handheld dental units stem from three key factors: equipment cost, operational efficiency, and patient convenience," wrote Senior Health Physicist, Thomas J. McGiff, and his colleagues Robert A. Danforth, and Edward E. Herschaft, after evaluating NOMAD products. "Use of a handheld dental X-ray unit can reduce the investment required to equip multiple operatories with mounted units in a standard dental practice."

The results of these studies suggest the economy of and preference for NOMAD handheld X-ray devices.

"Reducing the inefficiency of moving patients to a fixed X-ray unit when one is not available at the treatment location is an additional benefit, because relocation can be uncomfortable or impractical for the patient  ... and can prolong a procedure," McGiff, Danforth and Herschaft wrote.

For many dental practices, adding patient comfort to economic return is just the beginning of the NOMAD advantage.

"NOMAD is so fast and easy to use that we've never really encountered a situation where we're bogged down waiting for a unit," said Robert Studebaker, DDS, of Summit Dental in Boise, Idaho. "There are a multitude of things daily, in a dental office, that can cause speed bumps, but NOMAD increases our speed and makes us more efficient. We'll never go back to the traditional wall mount again."

Once using a NOMAD, dental practitioners, education and research luminaries, and humanitarian heroes never look back at the old, even archaic way of taking X-rays. "I have two NOMADs and my staff considers them the only way to take radiographs," said Marty Jablow, DMD, a renowned dental tech expert based in Woodbridge, New Jersey.

"Digital X-rays with our handheld X-ray device are faster and much more comfortable than conventional X-rays," said William Rasband, DDS, of Stonebrook Family Dental in Aurora, CO. "They also help us diagnose [our patients] oral health needs more accurately — all with up to 90 percent less radiation exposure than conventional X-rays!"

The NOMAD is not only safe, but truly becoming the stay-with-the-patient X-ray of choice.

"Why would you ever want to be tethered to a wall or pass-through, fight arm drift, and leave the procedure?" Kaufman said. "Many previous owners of wall mounts have evolved to this game-changing handheld device to improve their practice workflow and flexibility, offering a tangible and real return on investment."

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation.

Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.
