To enable upcoming regulatory filings, Medtronic has made public its partnership with Karl Storz, who have developed a system for endoscopic imaging. For the past four years, a press release reports, the two companies have partnered to seamlessly integrate Karl Storz’s 3D vision systems and visualisation components into Medtronic’s forthcoming robotic assisted surgical platform.
The press release reports that Medtronic and Karl Storz are leveraging the latest generation of Image1 S 3D platform to deliver “outstanding image quality and depth perception” to surgeons.
Megan Rosengarten, vice president and general manager of the Surgical Robotics business, which is part of the Minimally Invasive Therapies Group at Medtronic, comments: “Visualisation is critical to the successful execution of robotic assisted surgeries and minimally invasive surgeries. As we developed our robotic platform, we led with surgeons’ input to design a flexible surgical system that meets their needs and the needs of patients around the globe. Surgeons can be confident our robotic assisted platform will provide market leading 3D visualisation technology combined with best in-class surgical stapling and energy instruments.”
