Mobile x-ray system from Siemens Healthineers gains FDA clearance

Siemens Healthineers announced Wednesday, March 20, that its new mobile x-ray system, the Mobilett Elara Max, has gained FDA approval.

The system was designed with an emphasis on cybersecurity. It also includes “virtual workstation technology,” which gives physicians instant access to any and all necessary patient information, and 180-degree arm movement that provides positioning flexibility.

“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,” Scott Watson, vice president of x-ray products at Siemens Healthineers North America, said in a prepared statement. “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.”
