Ziehm Imaging Provides Germany's Federal Armed Forces (Bundeswehr) With Mobile X-Ray Systems

   

Ziehm Imaging won a Major Order for C-arms Worth Millions of Euros From Germany's Federal Armed Forces. Delivery and Installation of the one Hundred Plus Mobile X-Ray Units started in September.

NUREMBERG, Germany, October 4, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Ziehm Imaging won an international tender for 110 mobile x-ray systems (C-arms) from the Federal Armed Forces in Germany. These C-arms will be utilized worldwide by the Federal Armed Forces in operating rooms located in field hospitals, navy ships and regular hospitals. The Federal Armed Forces have ordered 20 C-arms with 3D functionality and the latest digital flat-panel technology (Ziehm Vision FD Vario 3D) plus 90 modular C-arms (Ziehm Solo), which Ziehm Imaging has exclusively modified at the request of the Federal Armed Forces.

The Federal Armed Forces set the highest of demands on mobile imaging technology used in the field. Besides reliability and technological capabilities, robustness and mobility are key requirements. In May 2010, the Forces decided to cooperate long-term with Ziehm Imaging as the technological superiority of Ziehm Imaging C-arms and their individual design concept are the perfect match for the specific needs of the Federal Armed Forces.

Modular x-ray units for air transportation and navy use

The Ziehm Solo C-arm is extremely easy to transport as it can be rolled and taken apart. Thanks to its easy and clear design concept, Ziehm Solo can be stored in four portable boxes. This allows it to be used in inaccessible regions, making this innovative x-ray unit perfect for challenging civil and humanitarian deployments. Developed in close coordination with the Federal Armed Forces, this C-arm is also ideal for German navy frigates.

First-class imaging with smallest footprint

The 20 Ziehm Vision FD Vario 3D units support intraoperative imaging with 3D reconstructions and deliver volume renderings of the bone structures which cannot be displayed with conventional C-arms. In addition to the 3D imaging capacity, a 30% reduction in footprint relative to other 3D systems makes these C-arms especially suited to the needs of the Federal Armed Forces. Ziehm Imaging's systems have the advantage of quick availability of 2D and 3D data during the operation, thus ensuring optimal treatment across a broad application spectrum.

"It is not only the Federal Armed Forces (Bundeswehr), who contributed valuable design input, that stand to benefit from the Ziehm Solo," says Klaus Hoerndler, CEO of Ziehm Imaging. "Other aid organizations such as the Red Cross will also be able to use this dismountable x-ray unit in future. We are convinced that this innovation will make an important contribution to the best possible medical care of the sick and injured in difficult-to-access conflict and disaster areas. And we are pleased that the Federal Armed Forces have shown their trust in our expertise and the technological superiority of our C-arms."
