At the start of the new Bundesliga season, Germany's national soccer league, Siemens Healthineers and FC Bayern Munich have signed a three-year partnership agreement. Beginning on July 1, 2017 and lasting till June 30, 2020, Siemens Healthineers, the separately managed healthcare business of Siemens AG, will be an official partner and the exclusive healthcare technology partner of the record-breaking German champions. Under the partnership Siemens Healthineers will equip the team’s training facilities on Säbener Strasse in Munich and the Allianz Arena stadium with cutting-edge ultrasound and X-ray systems, ultimately helping both to protect the team's players through medical checkups and to support post-injury recovery.
Medical checks and examinations using systems from Siemens Healthineers
Siemens Healthineers will equip the medical department of FC Bayern Munich with a number of different imaging systems. From the training grounds at Säbener Strasse in Munich and the Allianz Arena stadium to the team doctor’s practice, in the new FC Bayern Munich youth academy in the Munich district of Froettmaning and even mobile applications worldwide when the team is in transit, doctors will have both the ACUSON P500 and ACUSON NX3 ultrasound sets at their fingertips. In the case of acute injuries or post-surgery after-care, X-ray imaging will be performed using Cios Fusion and Multix Fusion systems. The agreement also includes service of the team’s medical equipment by Siemens Healthineers for the duration of the contract. Thanks to MRI scans at the Munich-based Radiologie München, the Bayern Munich players already benefit today from the modern 3-Tesla MRI MAGNETOM Skyra system from Siemens Healthineers.
