Siemens Healthcare introduces MULTIMOBIL 10, a high performance, low dose mobile X-ray system, which is manufactured in India and will cater to the potential demand in the entry level mobile X-ray systems. It is a versatile system powered with high frequency technology that can generate high contrast images at a low dose. The unique addition of 'zebra' design where the tube head has a zebra face and the rest of the system have zebra stripes, is an innovative, child friendly design that will allow fast and smooth scanning, especially in case of pediatric imaging.
"Siemens is a pioneer in introducing mobile X-ray systems and we are proud to introduce our locally manufactured MULTIMOBIL 10 mobile X-ray system. We have effectively addressed the needs of small and medium healthcare providers by introducing this entry level mobile, analog X-ray system, which is simple to use and delivers high performance at lower dose", said Dr Richard Guest, CEO, Siemens Healthcare, India.
Developed with a compact and lightweight design with a counterbalanced swivel-arm system, MULTIMOBIL 10 improves clinical workflow capabilities and allows higher flexibility in patient positioning - from recumbent, sitting or in any position in between. Challenging clinical orientations, such as abdominal and chest imaging even for obese patients are developed with ease. Its operational efficiency enables applications in a variety of clinical disciplines -- for instant bedside imaging, intensive care unit, neonatal intensive care unit, operating room, sports medicine and even in veterinary medicine.
The hassle free 'plug and perform' feature of MULTIMOBIL 10 makes it a device that can be used in multiple departments and situations demanded in the medical infrastructure. The system can perform under extreme operating conditions. It delivers a constant imaging power even when the power supply voltage falls to 170 V/180 V or rises to 265 V.
The easy to use operator console provides quick access to all functions and operating modes. MULTIMOBIL 10 has been designed with a convenient and safe parking position for the freely rotatable unit's head, especially when the system is being moved. The machine is capable of delivering shortest possible exposure times, virtually eliminating any motion blur.
