Are you a small clinic owner looking to stock it with high-quality equipment to provide your patients with the care they deserve? You’ve probably browsed page upon page of ultrasound equipment and wished that you could afford such a purchase. The truth is, you can’t afford to not make such a purchase – and there is a way you can do so, by going used.
Why to Buy Used Ultrasound Equipment
- They’re a Must
There is a growing need for well-equipped clinics across the country, from rural areas with patients traveling great distances just for care to the patients in busy areas that need a clinic close by.
If you choose to buy a used portable machine you can make house calls on patients who are too unwell or fragile to make the trip into your clinic. This is particularly helpful for clinics located in rural areas where patients may have to travel quite a distance to visit. Portable ultrasound machines are particularly efficient if your clinic is small in size and you don’t have the space to store a larger unit. It also means it can be moved from room to room within the clinic if necessary.
- Cost Management
If you are only interested in buying brand-new ultrasound equipment you will quickly see that it isn’t within your budget constraints to swing it. However, with used machinery, even the smallest budgets can accommodate a purchase.
- You’re Getting Quality
Just because you aren’t buying a brand-new product doesn’t mean that you won’t be getting a product that is of a high-quality. Provided you are working with a reputable dealer you are going to get a machine that has been fully reconditioned and is guaranteed to perform as new.
They work hard for you so it’s vital that you are purchasing equipment of a high quality as they work constantly and provide many functions. Additionally, there are a wide variety of ultrasound machines available. There are 2D machines as well as 3D and 4D, color and black and white. Of course, they are also available for a variety of specialties and the probes and transducers that fit.
- Repair Coverage
You can rest assured that you will have a warranty and repair coverage to cover you in case something does go wrong after your purchase.
There’s nothing more frustrating than having machinery breakdown, so it’s important that you know your vendor has parts on hand to make repairs as quickly as possible. You should also ensure that you follow any maintenance program that is suggested, whether by your dealer or the manufacturer.
An Ultrasound Machine Can Change Your Clinic
With patients being forced to wait long periods of time for tests, having a machine in your clinic can change their lives. It’s vital in the early detection of a variety of illnesses and can allow you to keep a close eye on the progress of your patient’s already diagnosed illnesses.
There is a machine to suit every type of clinic and every need that you might have – whatever your specialty, budget, or space restraints.
