INDIA –Siemens Healthineers has produced 500 units of imaging equipment Cios Fit in India at its Bengaluru facility since the start of production in 2019.
Cios Fit is widely used in orthopedic, spine, pain management, gastroenterology, and urology imaging.
Cios Fit is a multidisciplinary mobile C-arm that was conceptualized, designed, and manufactured in India before being exported to over 47 countries worldwide.
It is intended for the harsh environment of an operating room (OR), with the high patient load at medical institutions in mind.
Surgeons are able to maintain consistency with crystal clear images of anatomical structures, implants, screws, and devices thanks to Cios Fit’s powerful imaging technology, resulting in accurate treatment and thus improving patient experience.
“Despite the challenges imposed by the pandemic over the past two years, agile processes and dedicated efforts of the team ensured reaching this benchmark,” said Vivek Kanade, Managing Director, Siemens Healthcare Private Limited.
“This is a very encouraging time for our entire team. Despite the difficulties, their dedication ensured that we kept our promises. Cios Fit truly resonates with our mission of transforming care delivery in India.”
With its light weight design, the Cios Fit can be easily used and maneuvered by a single assistant in an operating room setting where surgeries must be performed with minimal assistance.
It is built to last, with the goal of providing consistent performance and high uptime. To increase the machine’s durability, sensitive elements are replaced with a shock-resistant SD card that can withstand the harsh operating room environment.
Siemens Healthineers recently inaugurated a new production line at its Bengaluru facility to manufacture Computed Tomography (CT) Scanners under the production linked incentive (PLI) scheme, as well as the launch of MAGNETOM Free.Star to provide high-value care in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) technology.
Siemens Healthineers has a nationwide sales network and a 24-hour service center in India. It also has two manufacturing facilities, one in Vadodara for diagnostics and the other in Bengaluru for medical imaging products, as well as a global software development center in Bengaluru.
