550UVB-NB-CR (Clinic Rated)

US $1,995.00

In stock (can be backordered)

The SolRx 550UVB-NB-CR is a powerful Hand / Foot & Spot Treatment UVB-Narrowband 311 nm phototherapy lamp that is “Clinic Rated” (CR) for heavy use in a hospital, dermatologist’s office, or phototherapy clinic. Unlike competitive units, the versatile 550CR can be quickly converted from a traditional hand & foot configuration with a hood to a spot treatment configuration for nearly any other area of the patient’s body. A single 550CR can be used by itself, or two devices can be mounted in the optional Positioning Cart for simultaneous hand and foot treatments.

Versus competitive devices that use 8 or 10 older-style single-tube 20-watt TL20W/01 bulbs, the 550UVB-NB-CR uses 5 modern twin-tube 36-watt Philips PL-L 36W/01 “long compact fluorescent” bulbs, which provide considerably more UVB-Narrowband irradiance, shorter treatment times, greater patient throughput, and lower re-bulbing costs. For special applications, the 550CR can alternatively be fitted with bulbs of several different UV wavebands including UVB-Broadband, UVA (PUVA), and UVA1. Please contact Solarc for more information.

The main difference between the in-home 550UVB-NB and the clinical 550UVB-NB-CR is that the “CR” device has an internal fan to help keep the patient and the device cool during heavy use, straps to keep the hood in place when the device is rotated from horizontal, and electrical Risk Class 2G labeling (hospital-grade low leakage).

The powerful and versatile 550UVB-NB-CR is in use at many phototherapy clinics and dermatologists’ offices in Canada. Please contact Solarc for references.
