SolRx HEX Full Phototherapy Booth for ClinicsA low-cost, effective full body phototherapy solution
Ideal for clinics of all sizes
Introducing a new affordable
Twenty Four bulb
Full Booth for clinics.
At less than half the cost of any other clinical-grade phototherapy booth on the market, the SolRx HEX combines power with affordability.
The SolRx HEX is an assembly of six E-Series 4-bulb devices to form a hexagon, with two adjacent patient entry doors. A plastic baseplate holds the devices in position at the bottom, and locking struts firm up the assembly at the top.
The SolRx HEX comes with clear acrylic windows for complete lamp protection, utilizes a passcode locking timer to prevent unauthorized use and can be assembled and ready to use in under an hour.
With a price of less than half of clinical phototherapy booths on the market today, the SolRx HEX is the clear choice for clinics big or small.
Relamping costs are cut in half with only 24 lamps being used while treatment times still remain short and effective for quick and easy patient throughput.
The SolRx HEX is a modular system, consisting of one E740 Master device that controls five additional units. All of these are assembled onto a 1/2″ thick plastic baseplate. Here’s what this means for you:
Each unit is lightweight and easy to handle, weighing less than 50 lbs. They come with sturdy handles on both sides, making them easy to move around. Unlike other bulky clinical devices, our system can be moved simply by sliding the baseplate on the floor – no need for casters.
The system is delivered in six boxes, with the bulbs already installed, plus the baseplate. We’ve made the setup process straightforward to save you costs. Just like our home users, clinics can typically assemble the system themselves within 1 hour, without the need for a technician. This is a significant advantage over other clinical devices that often require additional fees for delivery and setup.
In the rare case of a device malfunction, we can quickly ship a replacement (usually from our stock). The faulty device can be returned in the original packaging, saving you the expense of a technician visit. This is another area where we stand out from other clinical devices that often require costly technician visits.
If you ever need to relocate, the booth can be easily disassembled into six portable units. For added convenience during transport, you can also pair the units, fasten them facing each other, and ensure the bulbs are fully protected.
The SolRx HEX is designed with cost-effectiveness in mind. The total life cost of our system is typically much lower than that of other clinical booths. We’ve made every effort to make our devices as user-friendly and cost-effective as possible.
The SolRx HEX “C01” password-enabled control system allows the clinician to set and lock the treatment time and then leave the area to go on to other tasks. When ready, the patient starts the treatment from within the booth by pressing the start/stop button on the controller. Once the treatment is finished, the bulbs turn off automatically, the timer beeps, and the control system re-locks to prevent the patient from taking another treatment (with the previous treatment time shown in case it was not recorded).
The Master device is typically used as the left “door”, so the controller is accessible to the clinician when the door is open. It is complete with a patient accessible emergency stop pushbutton should they need to stop the treatment. Using it locks the controller. The Master device is also equipped with a keyed switchlock so the booth can be electrically disconnected and fully locked out, which is recommended practice at the end of each day.
The SolRx HEX does not have a “dosimeter”. Treatments are given in minutes:seconds. For a discussion of this topic see “Timed treatments versus dosimetry” below.
The SolRx HEX can operate on 208V (typical for commercial buildings) or 230-240V (as in a private residence), at 50hz or 60hz. It requires a dedicated 208-230V single-phase 15-Amp 2-pole circuit breaker and a NEMA 6-15P receptacle as shown below, by others.
Total current draw is nominally 10 amps. An IEC-C19 to NEMA 6-15P SJT14-3 (14 gauge, 3C) power supply cord is included. All devices must be grounded.
The SolRx HEX is modular, with one Master device controlling five (5) Add-on devices, all assembled onto a 1/2″ thick plastic baseplate. This means that:
- Each device is easy to handle, weighing less than 50 lbs and complete with a heavy duty handle on each side. The entire assembly can be moved by sliding the baseplate on the floor – casters are not necessary. This is in stark comparison to other clinical devices, which are huge unwieldy things.
- The system ships in six (6) boxes (with the bulbs installed) plus the baseplate, all by courier or truck. To save costs, setup is easy so just like our many home users, the clinic can do it themselves in typically within 1 hour, instead of a Solarc technician. Again, in stark comparison to other clinical devices, which command additional fees for delivery and setup.
- In the unlikely event a device ever fails, another can be shipped (typically from stock) and the failed device returned in the same packaging, again saving costs by not needing a Solarc technician. This again in stark comparison to other clinical devices, which command an expensive visit by a factory technician.
- If you ever need to move, simply disassemble the booth into six easy-to-carry devices. Alternatively, you can disassemble into pairs of devices and for transport fasten them so they face each other with the bulbs totally protected.
The all-important total life cost of the SolRx HEX is therefore typically much lower than that of other clinical booths.
Clear Acrylic Windows for Safety
The six devices of the SolRx HEX are assembled onto a baseplate that sits directly on the floor, to eliminate the need for a patient platform to treat the lower legs. Other booths are on casters that elevate the entire booth several inches, and therefore require a patient platform. The SolRx HEX baseplate is made of 1/2″ HDPE plastic, has a textured surface for safety and is anti-microbial.
Inside the booth, two sturdy handles on opposite sides are available for the patient to steady themselves.
For partial body treatment, any number of devices can be disconnected at the daisy-chained connection cables at the top of the devices, which can save valuable bulb life.
The Solarc SolRx HEX is complete with 24 genuine Philips TL100W/01-FS72 UVB-Narrowband 6-foot bulbs. Solarc is, and always has been, the only company in Canada to which Philips Canada (now Signify Canada) sells their UVB-Narrowband lamps directly.
