Siemens (NYSE:SI) Healthineers said today that it won FDA 510(k) clearance for its Mobilett Elara Max mobile X-ray system.
The Erlangen, Germany-based company touted that the newly cleared system features improved IT security and secure system integration to allow access of patient data at any time.
Siemens Healthineers also said that the system features antibacterial coating and an improved ergonomic design for better maneuverability.
“Siemens Healthineers is pleased to offer the Mobilett Elara Max, a mobile X-ray system with advanced cybersecurity features that provide state-of-the-art patient data protection. The system’s virtual workstation digitalizes healthcare by allowing technologists to access important patient information right at the bedside rather than return to the radiology department,” Siemens Healthineers NA X-ray products VP Scott Watson said in a press release.
In late January, Siemens Healthineers posted first quarter fiscal year 2019 earnings that showed both sales and bottom-line growth, but saw its diagnostics and advanced therapies divisions profits shrink compared with the same period during the previous year.
