Tax note: The Internet does not mean tax-free. If your state charges a sales tax, your state requires you to pay them that tax. However, we collect taxes for sales to Kansas and California so you don't have to do that if you live in either state. We need to get the California rate after the sale, and will let you know the amount before charging your card for it. This is the same amount you would pay locally.
Sometimes, people who are used to a standard office scanner find a medical scanner a bit noisy. This article explains why that is and what to do about it.
First of all, rest assured there is nothing wrong with your medical scanner. It's FDA certified and the noise is taken into account for that certification. But why does it exist?
The noise is due to the metal gears that drive the light source along behind the glass. Similar to solid metal timing gears on race engines, they provide precision movement and long lifetime. These are medical grade scanners, not consumer grade. They don't use nylon gears that wear rapidly or a belt that can break, rendering your scanner useless. What you're hearing isn't noise. It's the sound of money in your pocket. You won't be replacing your scanner for a while.
Note also that the nylon gears (or belt) lack the rigidity needed to ensure precision movement of the light source during the scan. Metal gears give you that precision. Yes, your standard consumer grade scanner meets spec when it's new. But after those plastic parts wear and deform, it no longer does.
But how do you cope with the sound of the metal gears, if you find the noise irritating? The basic method is an enclosure, something we learned to use back in the days of dot matrix printers. Those were much noisier than these scanners, so you will find the enclosures easily solve the noise problem. You can find these enclosures at places like the Wellbeing Store, Ergonomic Home, and Dustshield (all have Websites). You just need one large enough to accomodate your scanner.
If the noise affects primarily areas adjacent to where the scanner is, you could try a partition (even a short one may be sufficient). This noise reduction method gave rise to the modern cubicle farm. You may also find that simply moving the scanner so there's something solid between it and those being annoyed solves the problem (it has a USB connection, and you can find some very long USB cables at any computer store). Or move something solid to a new location between the printer and those being annoyed, for example a filing cabinet or a stack of those stackable bins.
If the room the scanner is in does not need to maintain FDA certification:
You can try the old college student trick of using a cardboard box spray-painted black.
You could buy eggshell foam and tack it to the wall next to the scanner.
If you have a patient who's a carpenter and is willing to swap services, s/he can build you a plywood enclosure; it will have much more sound absorbency than a simple cardboard box.
If you treat children and the scanner is near where the patient areas, you can create a "wall" of stuffed animals.
