Ziehm Imaging: 40 years of innovation in mobile X-ray technology / Mobile C-arms from the German market and innovation leader win over hospitals throughout the world

Nürnberg (ots) – Ziehm Imaging has stood for mobile X-ray-based
imaging for 40 years, and is the acknowledged technological leader in
mobile C-arms. With its innovative solutions, the manufacturer has
played a significant role in the rapid development of mobile X-ray
technology in recent years. Since the company was founded in 1972,
more than 10,000 Ziehm Imaging C-arms have been installed in
hospitals and medical facilities around the globe.

The Nuremberg-based company, with offices in the U.S., Italy,
France, Finland, Russia, Brazil, China, Singapore and South Africa,
specializes in the development and production of mobile C-arms. Its
range of products targets clinical users’ needs – e.g. portable
devices for emergency medicine in mobile OR units and liquid-cooled
high-end devices for hybrid operating rooms. “Our strength lies in
our dedicated focus on intraoperative imaging solutions in
combination with our global distribution network covering more than
75 countries,” explains Martin Törnvik, Vice President Global Sales
and Marketing of Ziehm Imaging GmbH.

As part of its global “40 Years of Innovation” campaign, Ziehm
Imaging is seeking to convey its mobile C-arm expertise to its target
groups: through its website, well-placed advertisements, trade fairs
and direct customer contact.

Innovation as a model for success

The C-arm specialist invests around 15 percent of its annual
turnover in research and development – a policy that has led to
considerable success. In the past 40 years, Ziehm Imaging has brought
numerous new developments in the area of mobile X-ray technology onto
the market and is the market leader in numerous countries. In 2006,
the company’s first fully digital, mobile C-arm heralded a new era in
imaging. Just last year, Ziehm Imaging presented the Hybrid Edition
of the Ziehm Vision RFD – a cost-effective, high-performance
alternative to fixed installed systems in hybrid rooms.

With a product portfolio in which 80 percent of devices are less
than three years old and with exciting innovations in development,
the company is in an ideal position to further increase its share of
the global market in the years to come.

past 40 years is available at www.ziehm.com/en/company/history.
