THIS JUST IN! Aribex will donate our 10,000th NOMAD to a humanitarian organization to be named … in just one hour! Who will it be? Keep an eye on the countdown clock from our landing page and this post, to catch the special announcement!
Throughout the entire month, we have celebrated the demand for handheld X-ray technology inside and outside the office with a 10K race, a luncheon, and a forthcoming press conference to announce the award recipient.
As a team, our celebration would not be possible without the dental, veterinary, and forensic science professionals and humanitarians (along with many more) who prefer versatility and improved patient care offered by the handheld X-ray.
“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 Ken Kaufman, our President and CFO. “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 and rechargeable 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.
Stay tuned for the big announcement to come!
