The use of innovative technology at KaVo follows a clear goal: it must add real value in everyday practice. The KaVo ProXam 2D meets this requirement in every respect and operation is simplified thanks to its numerous, automated presets and a multitude of smart support functions. The 2D image results are also impressive, with high, 16-pixel resolution and a compelling level of detail. 

The robot -supported 2-joint arm with SCARA (Selectively Compliant Articulated Robot Arm) technology also ensures anatomically perfect image geometry from high-precision movements.

The KaVo ProXam 2D X-ray unit offers a wide range of extraoral imaging methods:

  • Panoramic shots
  • Ceph imaging
  • Extraoral bitewings
  • TMJ recordings
  • Sinus imaging
  • Children's mode

The perfect symbiosis of simple operation and high image quality.

The KaVo ProXam 2D can be controlled using the desktop software on the PC or via the adjustable touch display panel on the unit - another userfriendly feature.

Operating the touch display is simple and intuitive: the most recently used modes are displayed on the start screen, allowing the user to quickly select the desired X-ray programme.

After selecting the programme, the step-by-step instructions guide you through the entire X-ray workflow.

The KaVo ProXam 2D also offers a number of advantages for patient comfort: thanks to the spacious, vertical range of motion, it is easy and convenient to take pictures of particularly tall patients as well as of children or wheelchair users. 

The open architecture allows for comfortable face-to-face patient positioning, which is a useful feature to reassure anxious patients. For easy orientation, the patient's position is shown on the touch display. 

The sagittal plane, the Frankfurt horizontal plane and the focus layer are projected via the triple laser system.

In addition to the standard panorama programme, there are other programmes to choose from:

  • Bitewing
  • Temporomandibular joint
  • Sinus 
  • Optional Ceph imaging for all orthodontic needs 

A special highlight: the KaVo ProXam 2D extraoral bitewing imaging programme offers an improved interproximal angulation geometry, which ensures more precise images of the bitewing with low radiation exposure.

To reduce the radiation dose, the exposure area can be focused on the diagnostic target area with the KaVo ProXam 2D using the optional "Horizontal and vertical segmentation" programme.

Compared to the full panoramic exposure, the radiation dose is reduced by up to 90%.

To protect the smallest patients, the KaVo ProXam 2D offers a special children's mode within each programme, in which the image area and the exposure times are reduced, thus minimising the radiation dose from the outset. This children's mode is automatically activated as soon as the smallest patient size is selected in the respective programme. As soon as the respective settings have been made, the KaVo ProXam 2D X-ray unit automatically adjusts all exposure parameters and the kV and mA exposure values can then be readjusted manually. 

Early in the design process, priority was given to developing a compact, space-saving unit. 

The KaVo ProXam 2D impresses users not only with its timeless and attractive design, but also with material and processing quality that stands the test of time.
