'da Vinci' a state-of-the-art surgical telepresence robot
Using the most advanced technology available today, the da Vinci Surgical System enables surgeons to perform delicate and complex operations through a few tiny incisions with increased vision, precision, dexterity and control.
The da Vinci Surgical System consists of several key components, including: an ergonomically designed console where the surgeon sits while operating, a patient-side cart where the patient lays during surgery, four interactive robotic arms, a high-definition 3D vision system, and proprietary EndoWrist®instruments.
da Vinci is powered by state-of-the-art robotic technology that allows the surgeon’s hand movements to be scaled, filtered and translated into precise movements of the instruments working inside the patient’s body.
Applications in remote regions and situations such as Battle-Field Surgery, taking away the Surgeon from the front-line; emergency situations in remote developing nations, sugion can be located the other side of the world while multiple da Vinch system can be flown in the other side of the world.
