Siemens Healthineers is releasing a new mobile, general purpose X-ray system, the Mobilett Elara Max. It features secure connectivity to the hospital’s IT systems to quickly store and retrieve the captured images, a design to make the unit easier to clean, and overall improved ergonomics for ease of use.
The cabling has been integrated into the unit, so wiping it with disinfectants is easy. Joints of the X-ray arm have parts positioned closer together to narrow the size of crevices and reduce tolerances.
Basically, this is a light and mobile budget friendly device that can probably integrate into the clinic’s IT system fairly easily. Siemens Healthineers does offer additional software options to boost the capability of the system and the clinic’s ability to process related data.
“When we developed the Mobilett Elara Max, patient safety was of primary importance to us,” said Carsten Bertram, Head of X-Ray Products at Siemens Healthineers, in a published statement. “And because protecting patient data is also becoming more important, we equipped the system with comprehensive IT security technology.”
