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

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.
