Aribex Reaches Major Milestone, Builds 10,000th NOMAD Handheld X-ray

OREM, Utah, Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Aribex, Inc., worldwide leader in handheld X-ray technologies, welcomed today the completed production of their 10,000th NOMAD® handheld X-ray system.  Aribex celebrates the demand of this technology, as dental offices increasingly prefer the versatility and improved patient care offered with the use of the handheld X-ray. 

"We're proud that the NOMAD has been so widely accepted in the market that we've reached this 10,000-unit milestone," said Ken Kaufman, President and CFO of Aribex. "We've worked very hard to get to this point, and we cannot thank our customers enough for their continued patronage and support. We're looking forward to many more exciting product achievements in the future."

In celebration of the 10,000th (10K) unit, Aribex participated in the Wasatch Wellness 10K/5K/1 mile run held August 4 in Provo, Utah. Race proceeds helped benefit the Provo Canyon Behavioral Hospital and mental illness patients who actively pursue increased behavioral wellness and seek the return to a normal routine in life.

Eighty-six employees, family members and friends participated in the event, with nine of them carrying NOMAD devices during the competition and 10 of them winning medals in their respective races and age/gender categories. Aribex also won the Corporate Cup Challenge for the most participants.

Aribex plans on donating the 10,000th NOMAD to a humanitarian organization to be named later this month.

"Since our company's roots are based on humanitarian efforts, we thought it appropriate to donate this historic unit to an organization that works among those with exceptional needs," said Kaufman. "We've also seen that dental offices using the NOMAD have greater opportunity for humanitarian outreach, due to the portability of the NOMAD."

Unlike the conventional wall-mount and portable X-ray systems, the NOMAD handheld devices from Aribex are lightweight, rechargeable (battery-powered), and can go anywhere. The NOMAD has rapidly become the X-ray device of choice for dental professionals around the world.

Because of its handheld nature, the NOMAD has been found to be of great value outside the traditional dental environment. Units have been taken on countless service missions around the world, treating those who previously have not had such access to care. Recent missions have gone to the Philippines, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Mozambique.

In addition, the NOMAD has been used in forensic victim identification following natural disasters such as the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and last year's earthquake in Fukushima, Japan. ­
