Ultrasound strain reliefs – OEM versus improperly remanufactured components

Ultrasound strain reliefs – OEM versus improperly remanufactured components


Hi everyone Larry Nguyen with Summit Imaging again
an ultrasound and mammography equipment support organization and another quality
tip that we’re bringing to you on our YouTube channel is another section about
remanufactured cable assemblies relative to the OEM cable assemblies and we just
will start out as usual with what is an OEM cable or something what’s it
supposed to look like well we previously discussed OEM lines
on the inside that actually transmit the information from the crystal the
transducer down to the can and goes into the system today we’re going to focus on
the strain relief and in its function and how the OEM strain reliefs are very
robust and they’re very good relative to the remanufactured strain relief so
today the strain relief does exactly what it’s supposed to do which is
relieve the strain this is the OEM strain relief as you can see as we put
pressure and when an ultrasound technician starts to scan typically this
relieves a strain from the wires on the inside from folding over causing
premature wear and the premature wear is going to cause image quality issues this
is a very soft version and a remanufactured version of the strain relief and
you can see how it overly exaggerated some movement thus not really protecting
inside minds and unfortunately it’s a compounding problem for wear and tear
and premature failure relative to the quality of om lines because the internal
lines just are not the same durability as the OEM lines themselves so this can
actually increase your total cost of ownership can have your equipment go
down you know more often and longer and the tough thing for health care
facilities is you don’t know that these remanufactured products are inside the
transducer you had gotten repaired or you had ordered from the ultrasound
organization on that Summit Imaging we really focus on using the OEM components
to preserve the safety of performance of these transducers and you know we are of
the belief that you know the strain relief is a critical part
of it and we’re actually able to perform the repairs on the OEM strongly for you
without resorting to low-quality remanufactured pieces like this so if
you have these issues you know we are always more than willing to help our
information is here and our technical support team is available through that
information to help you through any technical issues you have on your
ultrasound system or your transducers and if you enjoyed what you
