In the emergency room of a hospital radiograms shall be made rapidly without having to move the patients. For this reason the X-ray apparatus was mounded in a rail to the ceiling. This allows flexible use at any place for checkups. Until today such an application wasn’t possible due to hanging cables. Now the cables are guided in an igus roller e-chain® of the series 2828. Because it shows low rolling friction only, the X-ray apparatus can be moved rapidly without effort.
