ATON GmbH today announced that, via its subsidiary ATON US, Inc., it has acquired 100% ownership of OrthoScan, Inc., a leading innovator in the orthopaedic extremity imaging market with its Mini C-Arm product offerings.

With this acquisition, ATON demonstrates strategic commitment to MedTech investments and, especially, to mobile x-ray imaging as ATON already owns Ziehm Imaging Group, German technology leader in full-size mobile C-Arms.

OrthoScan and Ziehm Imaging Group will remain two separate entities, as their main focus covers different needs of surgeons, orthopaedics, podiatrists, hospitals and out-patient- clinics. However, ATON expects that operating under a joint holding structure; both companies will generate substantial synergies in the future.

OrthoScan will continue to operate under its current name and will be managed by its current senior management team with Robert Morocco remaining President and CEO.

ATON GmbH, owned by the Helmig Family, is a German private investment company which holds, as strategic investor, majority equity of companies in the fields of MedTech, MiningTech, Aviation and Engineering.
