The Self-Driving Mobile 3D C-arm

Move like never before: Discover the CIARTIC Move, a new class of self-driving mobile 3D C-arm. The CIARTIC Move has the potential to address operational challenges in intraoperative imaging caused by staff shortages and overloaded surgical teams in the OR1. 



The CIARTIC Move unburdens OR teams by automating intraoperative imaging workflows. It effectively reduces the time, effort and workforce capacity needed to move and position the system1. 

Self-driving capabilities

CIARTIC Move is a self-driving mobile 3D C-arm equipped with a fully motorized chassis featuring holonomic wheels that allow floating-like movements in every direction. The motorized chassis is a key enabler for automation features. 


Automated workflows

Position Assist

With Position Assist, you can easily store up to 12 procedure-specific system positions and recall them at any time. This can help accelerate your intraoperative imaging. 

Park Assist

Independently park your C-arm, then bring it back to its previous position at the OR table with no manual interaction or physical effort. 

ISO Assist

When you move the detector up or down, ISO Assist performs intelligent compensatory movements to keep the anatomy of interest in focus. 


Save intraoperative imaging time

The CIARTIC Move has already proven its benefits in a preclinical study1: The system enabled significant time savings for all three anatomical regions included in the study (pelvis, spine, distal radius). 


Independent C-arm operation

With Smart Control, a single person can operate the system remotely. The wireless Smart Control allows you to do so even from inside the sterile field.2 


Effortless handling

Touch-sense handles allow effortless, motor-assisted movements during procedures and make it easier to steer the system between operating rooms. 


Intraoperative 2D / 3D imaging

Benefit from precise 2D and 3D visualization of anatomical structures and metallic objects with excellent image quality. 


Technical Details

CIARTIC Move automates and accelerates intraoperative imaging workflows.
