Intuitive Surgical and Trumpf Medical Team Up to Address Hospitals’ Need for Operating Room Integration

Surgery and Surgical Robotics October 27, 2015

Intuitive Surgical and Trumpf Medical are now offering Integrated Table Motion for the da Vinci® Xi® Surgical System in Europe. This first-of-its-kind product includes the latest Intuitive Surgical robotic-assisted surgical system and Trumpf Medical’s advanced operating table, the TruSystem® 7000dV. The surgical system and table have been seamlessly integrated to allow surgeons and anesthesiologists – for the first time – to make a comprehensive range of table adjustments easily and efficiently during da Vinci Surgery.

The ability to reposition the operating table – in real time – with the surgical robotic arms docked addresses the need for operating room efficiency and maximizes access, exposure and reach during a robotic-assisted surgical procedure. This integrated functionality gives operating room (OR) staff the ability to:

  • Optimally position the table so that gravity exposes anatomy during multi-quadrant da Vinci System procedures, such as colorectal surgery
  • Maximize reach and access to target anatomy – enabling surgeons to interact with tissue at an ideal working angle
  • Achieve precise positioning by leveraging the table’s wide range of motion–trend, tilt, slide, height and flex
  • Use the intelligent remote control and platform to make table movements and synchronize the OR team through real-time audio and visual feedback
  • Reposition the table during the procedure to enhance anesthesiologists’ care of the patient
