“In light of the enormous market response Airo has already experienced around the world, we are eager to begin installation and use in Europe,” said Stefan Vilsmeier, President and CEO at Brainlab. “We are dedicated to meeting the growing demand for real-time imaging in the O.R. to improve and expedite clinical decision-making which benefits both the patient and the surgical team. Airo surpasses this demand and we are pleased to now be able to provide our European customers with this advanced imaging system.”
Airo is a unique system that advances health care delivery by producing high-quality CT images that enhance surgical decision-making and support minimally invasive surgery. The portable scanner provides reproducible high-resolution images, thanks to its integrated O.R. table column by TRUMPF and 32-slice helical scan detector array. Airo boasts the largest gantry opening on the market, lending itself particularly to cranial, spine and trauma procedures. Airo also connects seamlessly and automatically with Curve™ Information Guided Surgery by Brainlab, allowing for immediate surgical navigation on newly acquired images in the O.R.
“Receiving CE Mark approval for our flagship product, Airo, is a significant milestone for Mobius Imaging,” said Gene Gregerson, CEO of Mobius Imaging. “We are proud of the extensive research and usability put into Airo that resulted in a Red Dot award-winning product design. Airo has been showcased at many European congresses and customers are excited to have the opportunity to bring the product’s benefits to their patients.”
The first European shipments of Airo are expected in April 2014.
Brainlab, headquartered in Munich, develops, manufactures and markets software-driven medical technology, enabling access to and consistency of advanced, less invasive patient treatment.
Core products revolve around information-guided surgery, precision radiation therapy, and information and knowledge sharing that fosters interdisciplinary collaboration. Brainlab technology currently powers treatments in the fields of neurosurgery, radiosurgery/radiotherapy, orthopedics, ENT, CMF, spine, and trauma.
Privately held since its formation in 1989, Brainlab has more than 5,000 systems installed in about 95 countries. Brainlab employs 1,150 people in 17 offices worldwide, including 290 research & development engineers, who form a crucial part of the product development team.

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...

While testing is often ignored when it comes to DevOps - it could be the most important aspect of achieving true DevOps success. Without rethinking automated testing from the ground-up, the entire DevOps productivity gain cannot be realized. Large tech companies build their own rapid test automation that runs in minutes across functional, performance, security and other tests. In his session at DevOps Summit, Kevin Surace, CEO of Appvance, will discuss how we learn from these real-world succe...

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.

DevOps delivers remarkable results. But does it help all of IT? Can traditional ‘mode 1’ IT benefit as much as innovative ‘mode 2’? How about the rest of your business? Or have you just shifted your bottleneck? And if so, what can you do about it? Improving dev and ops is necessary, but not sufficient. It often just shifts the burden sideways (e.g., to PMs, SQA, InfoSec, DBAs, NOC, etc.), upstream (to the PMO, Controller, Business Liaison, etc.), or downstream (to TechPubs, Service Desk, Traini...
