How much do Imaging and Fluoroscopy stretchers cost to buy?
How much do imaging and fluoroscopy stretchers actually cost? Anyone researching stretchers for their imaging department will likely have this question at the front of their minds; it’s a question we are asked frequently.
Price matters, and at Felgains we want to educate everyone in the market about how much imaging and fluoroscopy stretchers cost, regardless of whether you choose to buy from us or from elsewhere.
So, in this short article, I’ll outline the average prices for imaging stretchers, and explain some of the factors that can have an effect on the price you pay.
How much do imaging and fluoroscopy stretchers cost?
How much a stretcher costs can vary depending on the level of customisation and specialist features which we will cover below, but for a ballpark figure, you can expect to pay between £10,000 to £15,000 for an imaging stretcher.
The Felgains ImageFlow stretcher costs £9,666.00 excl. VAT.
Compared to imaging tables, which can cost up to £50,000, imaging stretchers are a more economical alternative for imaging departments.
Does adding technology and accessories affect the cost?
Specialist features and technology such as weigh scales, powered drive systems, and sliding mattress platforms will all affect the overall cost of am imaging stretcher.
Powered drive systems, for example, will typically add at least a £3,000-£5,000 additional cost to a stretcher, depending on the system fitted. Powered drive systems can range from a basic one-directional drive, controlled via a joystick or touchpad, up to higher-end multi-directional systems that are pressure-sensitive and built into the stretcher’s handle.
Other minor accessories such as accessory rails, IV poles, and oxygen bottle holders will also add to the overall cost.
What else affects the cost?
As with most capital equipment purchases, freight costs can have a big impact on the final cost you pay for an imaging stretcher.
Overseas freight for large and heavy items such as stretchers can often cost hundreds or even thousands of pounds, and subsequently, many NHS buyers prefer to source equipment from UK-based suppliers and manufacturers, to cut down on freight costs and delivery times.
