CFI proudly introduces The Sunrise Extender - a simple, low cost, easy to use Alternative To The Merchant Board. The Sunrise Extender is a vinyl covered foam cylinder with two evenly spaced straps. On the end of each strap is an extrusion which clips onto the cassette, effectively Ã‡ï¿½_extendingÃ‡ï¿½_ the patientÃ‡ï¿½Ã™s reach by approximately 6 inches. The Sunrise Extender is easy to clean, and works with any size cassette.
Ã‡ï¿½_Working in an orthopedic clinic, I see a variety of patients. The Sunrise Extender works great, especially with the more difficult patients. We often see heavier patients that cannot reach the cassette to set it close enough to the knees for a quality exam. The Sunrise Extender gives them the extra length they need to put it in the proper place. Another situation where the Sunrise Extender is extremely helpful is when you have a patient with short arms. The extender is an excellent device that can help correct all of these problems. It practically guarantees every time that you will not need to repeat the x-ray.Ã‡ï¿½_
