It is built for the tough job in the Operation Room (OR) where the equipment needs to deliver high quality imaging, be simplified in its usage and robust to last for long; while ensuring price point is not exceeded.With Cios Fit-powerful imaging technology, the surgeons are able to maintain consistency with crystal clear images of anatomical structures, implants, screws and devices resulting in accurate treatment and thus improving patient experience.Dr Nanjappa K M of Cauvery Uroderm Center, at Kalyan, near Mumbai, where Cios Fit was recently tested shared his experience while performing an Endo-urology procedure. He mentioned, “Cios Fit has an exceptional image quality, which is the best I have experienced so far. The touch screen display and the printer with the machine is a good add on feature for documentation. Moreover, the pulse mode of the machine is so well integrated with the software, that the dynamic images in this mode are very smooth, without any ghosting and lags. The best part of the machine is its radiation dose per case, significantly lower than any of the other machines available today. Overall, it’s a good, compact, sleek, feature-rich asset”.Cost effective and smart usage for versatile imaging of orthopedic trauma, spine, pain management, gastro and urology surgeries.Powerful state-of-the-art imaging technology with built-to-last design to address tough jobs in the OR.Innovative touch-and –play concept for smart usability and fast boot up for operational simplicity.In an OR set up where surgeries need to be performed with minimum assistance, the Cios Fit can be easily used and maneuvered with its light weight design by a single assistant. It has a built-to-last design, which aims to enable consistent performance and high up time, no matter how intensely it is used. In order to improve the machine’s durability, sensitive elements are replaced with a shock resistant SD card that helps to handle the intense OR environment; thereby cutting down on avoidable costs.Smart radiation dose management with dedicated pediatric mode and smart power management for patients with diverse needs, ensure safety in the OR not only for patients but also for the surgeon and other OR staff.Imaging gets simplified with the unique touch and play concept of Cios Fit, where the image and dose both can be optimized with just one button push.  Free movements with 380° C-arm angulation with no need to lock it after each movement, simplifies the entire process for the OR team. Moreover, its small footprint and light weight design eases the door-to-door transfer for the OR staff.Fast boot time, dynamic and high quality imaging, ease of documentation of the procedure with a USB port and an instant connection to the printer and easy maneuverability are the key features of Cios Fit.Sanjay David, Business Area Head – Advanced Therapies, Siemens Healthineers, India said, “The Cios Fit mobile C-arm is  designed for the tough environment in an OR, where there are multiple procedures in a day to be performed; keeping in mind the high patient load at the medical institutions. Cios Fit addresses many concerns of all the stakeholders, right from healthcare professionals to operators and patients, as part of our endeavor in  transforming care delivery” By Prabhat Prakash on December 4, 2018 WHO tri-regional policy dialogue seeks solutions to challenges facing international mobility of health professionals News Share MaxiVision Eye Hospitals launches “Mucormycosis Early Detection Centre” Phoenix Business Consulting invests in telehealth platform Healphacenter_img Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals releases first “Comprehensive Textbook of COVID-19” Read Article The missing informal workers in India’s vaccine story Heartfulness group of organisations launches ‘Healthcare by Heartfulness’ COVID care app Related Posts Menopause to become the next game-changer in global femtech solutions industry by 2025last_img read more
