Leading medtech company, Siemens Healthineers, has announced the local manufacturing of its Multix Impact E digital radiography X-ray machine in Bengaluru.

The move aims to provide better access to care for patients in the country by supporting the government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative.

The Multix Impact E digital system is a floor-mounted system featuring all the necessary tools for easy, intuitive system operation and allows for the detection of anatomical details at low doses of radiation.

The X-ray system will be manufactured in the Bengaluru factory, leveraging several years of experience in local-for-local manufacturing of mobile C-arms, CT, and MRI systems.

Sharing thoughts, Hariharan Subramanian, MD, Siemens Healthcare, said, "This move is a testament to our strong commitment to enhancing patient care and supporting the healthcare needs of the country. Our strong focus on local manufacturing and commitment to patient safety underscores our purpose to pioneer healthcare solutions for everyone, everywhere, sustainably.”

According to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) 2022 data, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), tuberculosis (TB), and road injuries continue to be among the leading causes of death in India.

An X-ray is one of the primary diagnostic tools instrumental in diagnosing bone fractures in trauma and emergency, anomalies in the chest including infectious diseases such as TB and certain tumors.

The commercial availability of Multix Impact E, a locally manufactured digital radiography X-ray system for the Indian market is expected to enhance the general provision of secondary care for which digital X-ray is a crucial requirement.

“With the local manufacturing of Multix Impact E digital X-ray, we are making basic healthcare available in low-resource settings in India, thereby building capacities and achieving wider access to care," Tisha Boatman, senior VP, Global Access to Care, Siemens Healthineers, stated.

Germany-based Siemens Healthineers is a leading medtech company that aims to expand precision medicine, transform care delivery, improve the patient experience, and digitalize healthcare.

Recently, Siemens Healthineers India appointed Kalavathi GV (Kala) as the head of the development center (DC) and executive director. In her new role, Kala is expected to drive the development of precision healthcare solutions using AI, automation, and digital transformation for all business lines of Siemens Healthineers.

In January, Siemens Healthineers and the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) joined hands to launch the Siemens Healthineers-Computational Data Sciences (CDS) Collaborative Laboratory for AI in Precision Medicine at IISc Bangalore. The newly launched lab focuses on accurately diagnosing neurological diseases and analyzing their clinical impact at a population level.
