The FX-7 was the most numerous models of the FX (Or "Fixit") line of Medical Droids built by Medtech Industries. The FX-7 was extremely common in medical bay installations in the years just before the Clone Wars, but the development of medical technology advanced so rapidly during that conflict that by its end, the model had become outdated. Medtech Industries eventually went bankrupt, and agents of the New Order sold off vast stores of FX-7s to pay off the company's taxes.
As a result, although the FX-7 is not the preferred Medical Droid of The Rebellion Era, it is one of those most commonly encountered in places other than large medical ships and military bases. Because it is cheap compared to newer models, having an FX-7 is considerably better than having no Medical Droid, and many of them eventually develop protective personalities that make them beloved members of the groups that use them. Unlike the 2-1B Medical Droids, which have extensive programming locks to prevent them from harming living creatures (Except in the pursuit of life-saving operations), an FX-7 has only a simple block against intentionally causing harm. This block can be bypassed easily, and some less savory groups reprogram their FX-7s as Interrogation Droids.
The two main drawbacks of the FX-7 model are its lack of mobility and lack of a Vocabulator. Since the Droids are designed to be permanent medical assistants, they have no mode of movement and remain wherever they are placed. Although this design helps keep down the cost of the Droid, it means that something as simple as a patient sliding off the wrong side of the table can prevent an FX-7 from assisting. Some groups that use FX-7s equip them with Vocabulators and post unskilled workers nearby to aid the Droids; other plug the gaps in communication and mobility with a used Translator Droid and a few Labor Droids.
FX-7 Medical Droids can't be played as Droid Heroes.
