Cios Fit-a multidisciplinary mobile C-arm ready for demanding environments, was recently introduced at the 63rd Annual Indian Orthopaedic Association Conference (IAOCON), Coimbatore, setting a benchmark in mobile C-arms. It was inaugurated by Dr.S Rajasekaran, Chairperson of AOSpine (International community of Spine Surgeons, headquartered in Switzerland).
Cios Fit is designed to help in improving quality of care, achieve efficient workflows, and profit from high uptime; thereby reducing avoidable costs. It is built for the tough job in the Operation Room (OR) where the equipment needs to deliver high quality imaging, be simplified in its usage and robust to last for long; while ensuring price point is not exceeded. With Cios Fit-powerful imaging technology, the surgeons are able to maintain consistency with crystal clear images of anatomical structures, implants, screws and devices resulting in accurate treatment and thus improving patient experience.
Dr Nanjappa K.M. of Cauvery Uroderm Center, at Kalyan, near Mumbai, where Cios Fit was recently tested shared his experience while performing an Endo-urology procedure. He mentioned, “Cios Fit has an exceptional image quality, which is the best I have experienced so far. The touch screen display and the printer with the machine is a good add on feature for documentation. Moreover, the pulse mode of the machine is so well integrated with the software, that the dynamic images in this mode are very smooth, without any ghosting and lags. The best part of the machine is its radiation dose per case, significantly lower than any of the other machines available today. Overall, it’s a good, compact, sleek, feature-rich asset”.
- Cost effective and smart usage for versatile imaging of orthopedic trauma, spine, pain management, gastro and urology surgeries
- Powerful state-of-the-art imaging technology with built-to-last design to address tough jobs in the OR
- Innovative touch-and –play concept for smart usability and fast boot up for operational simplicity
In an OR set up where surgeries need to be performed with minimum assistance, the Cios Fit can be easily used and maneuvered with its light weight design by a single assistant. It has a built-to-last design, which aims to enable consistent performance and high uptime, no matter how intensely it is used.
In order to improve the machine’s durability, sensitive elements are replaced with a shock resistant SD card that helps to handle the intense OR environment; thereby cutting down on avoidable costs. Smart radiation dose management with dedicated pediatric mode and smart power management for patients with diverse needs, ensure safety in the OR not only for patients but also for the surgeon and other OR staff.
Imaging gets simplified with the unique touch and play concept of Cios Fit, where the image and dose both can be optimized with just one button push. Free movements with 380° C-arm angulation with no need to lock it after each movement, simplifies the entire process for the OR team. Moreover, its small footprint and light weight design eases the Door-to-Door transfer for the OR staff.
