. Only ten models (FXs-1 through 10) were made. They were often immobile, cylindrical droids with numerous "arms" that assisted patients during surgery or other medical procedures. They could help by cutting away dead flesh, holding items, or even injecting bacta fluid (which was why they were occasionally constructed at command stations during times of war to save injured soldiers).
During the Clone Wars, Galactic Republic forces often deployed FX-series droids by aerial insertion into forward positions and Republic Mobile Surgical Units, acting as mobile aid stations for critically wounded clone troopers.

, his fit of rage and grief caused Vader to destroy everything in the room with the Force, including the medical droids. The round "head" of the FX model that worked on Vader was crushed, as well most of its body. External containers holding presumably bacta shattered, spilling their contents.
During the Galactic Civil War, both the Galactic Empire and the Alliance to Restore the Republic used FX models.
