Synaptive Medical Unveils Groundbreaking Surgical Robotic Arm Modus V™
TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Synaptive Medical Inc., a medical device and technology company, today released Modus V™. This second-generation, high-powered digital microscope with a surgical robotic arm is derived from Canadarm technology used on the International Space Station. Designed with feedback from Synaptive’s clinical partners, Modus V is the new cornerstone of its integrated BrightMatter™ platform.
Modus V sets the new standard for robot-assisted neurosurgery with the most powerful optics available on the market that give unprecedented views of patient anatomy and may allow surgeons to perform less invasive procedures with more precision. For patients, less invasive procedures may lead to faster recovery times, reduced complications and, in some cases, may render an inoperable diagnosis operable.
For surgeons, Modus V’s advanced instrument tracking with auto-focus, combined with a highly flexible arm, also allows for increased surgical efficiency through hands-free control, better ergonomics during procedures and greater versatility in the operating room. These innovations feed developments in precision medicine by creating more opportunity to capture, analyze and draw trends from patient data and build better decision-making tools for physicians, researchers and hospital administrators.
