Why You Should Contact R.O.S. First if you Plan to Trade-In Your Equipment to an OEM

Our recent Refurbished Medical Equipment Survey results indicate a trend that we have been seeing for some time now. More and more hospitals and clinics in the United States are opting to trade in their used equipment to OEMs (original equipment manufacturers), rather than selling them outright in the open market.

Let’s face it. For many hospitals, trading in equipment is a much easier process than selling or consigning a machine. Just like trading in a car when you buy or lease a new one, you let the Seller take care of the headaches. After all, isn’t one transaction a lot easier than two?

For many years, cobalt-60 systems were the equipment of choice for radiation therapy in developing regions of the world. Cobalt systems are still a good option today, according to the IAEA, in areas of the world where linear accelerators are not an option due to power requirements, servicing capabilities and humidity concerns.

Over the past two decades, used/refurbished linear accelerators have become a viable option to replace cobalt-60 systems, as costs of pre-owned linear accelerators have decreased. Over the past decade, ROS has delivered and installed dozens of refurbished linear accelerators in countries all over the world, many as replacements for older cobalt machines. Most of the equipment has originated from developed countries including the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Holland, Sweden, Australia and Taiwan.

Aceleradores Reemplazan Cobalto
Durante muchos años, las máquinas de radioterapia de cobalto eran populares por todo del mundo. Los equipos de cobalto (fabricados por las empresas AECL, Theratron, MDS Nordion, Best, etc.) siguen siendo una buena opción, de acuerdo con el IAEA, en las zonas del mundo donde los aceleradores lineales no son una buena opción debido a los problemas con electricidad.
