Aribex Was the first company to provide a portable, handheld X-ray device. The company is headquartered in Orem, Utah. Aribex was initially founded in order to provide portable dental X-ray equipment for humanitarian field-service work. Having depth and experience with portable X-ray technology, Dr. Clark Turner formed a Utah "C" Corporation in late 2003 and Aribex was born. In a short time, Dr. Turner, President and CEO, designed a cordless, battery-powered, portable / hand-held X-ray instrument to serve as the a platform for portable radiographic imaging. Patent applications were filed and Aribex developed a working prototype that was assembled for testing. The introductory product, targeted for dental radiography, is the basis for a line of radiological imaging products that will also address medical, security, and industrial imaging applications. In June 2010, the NOMAD system was chosen to be displayed at the National Museum of Dentistry in Baltimore, MD.
