Robotic technologies and systems are increasingly gaining ground in the medical sector again. Specifically in the field of surgery, many applications aiming to assist surgeons are being supported by assistance systems more and more frequently. It is not a question of replacing the surgeon but of enhancing his or her skills.
AKTORmed, the German market leader in robotic assistance systems guiding endoscopes in minimally invasive surgery, boasts more than ten years of experience. In this context, our SOLOASSIST II platform sets an industrial benchmark regarding flexibility, functionality and operability. At present, we are addressing interventions in general surgery, urology and gynaecology.
Intelligent assistance systems for minimally invasive surgery
The assistance system for MIS surgery
Stable positioning of the endoscope to obtain a steady image
Thanks to its carbon structure, the SOLOASSIST is stable and vibration-free. It does not shake or tilt the horizon, enabling fatigue-free work.
Straightforward and intuitive operation via joystick
The human hand is the most precise tool at our disposal. Manual work can be performed intuitively without mental stress. That is why you control the SOLOASSIST via an ergonomic joystick – simply simple.
Precise endoscope positioning within a unique range of movement
You determine the image yourself. There are no understanding- dings. Positioning is precise and sensitive. Thanks to the unique range of movement, there is no need to adapt the way you work.
Unhindered access to the patient site, no bothersome components impeding the trocar area.
The SOLOASSIST supports the endoscope from above, leaving ample room for your instruments. There is no need to alter your normal workflow.
Straightforward handling; ready to operate in just a few minutes
Straightforward and quick set-up and disassembly. The SOLOASSIST is attached directly on the operating table and covered with a sterile drape while the patient is being prepared for surgery.
Thanks to a flexible concept of autoclavable components, the SOLOASSIST is immediately ready for the next surgical intervention – no waiting times.
