2015 was full of medical advancements in the medical robotic industry, and 2016 promises to surpass expectations. New medical devices and discoveries arise every day, and each announcement brings a new piece to the emerging health tech puzzle. Recently, Medtronic, a medical device company, joined in on the purchase of Hansen Medical’s Sensei robotic system.
Here are some quick facts about the Sensei Robotic System:
- Made for collecting electrophysiological data
- Uses electro-anatomic mapping and recording systems
- Built for precise navigation and stability
- Safety and effectiveness has not been established for use of system with cardiac ablation catheters
The Sensei X Robotic system integrates 3-D catheter controls and 3-D visualization to allow surgeons to control robotically steerable catheters that will collect data within the heart atria. The technology is powered by a robotically controlled arm that allows for proper navigation, stability and positioning within the patient's heart atria. The Sensei X Robotic system has been used in thousands of patients, and surgeons will continue to use the robotic system in the future.
