Robotic technologies and systems are increasingly gaining ground in the medical sector again. Specifically in the field of surgery, many applications aiming to assist surgeons are being supported by assistance systems more and more frequently. It is not a question of replacing the surgeon but of enhancing his or her skills.

AKTORmed, the German market leader in robotic assistance systems guiding endoscopes in minimally invasive surgery, boasts more than ten years of experience. In this context, our SOLOASSIST II platform sets an industrial benchmark regarding flexibility, functionality and operability. At present, we are addressing interventions in general surgery, urology and gynaecology.

SOLOASSIST II - Give yourself freedom

Intelligent assistance systems for minimally invasive surgery

The assistance system for MIS surgery

  • Full functionality for visceral surgery, urology and gynaecology.
  • Stable and shake-free image, enhancing the quality of surgery.
  • Assistants can focus their full attention on the operating procedure and thus actively support the surgeon.
  • Stable positioning of the endoscope to obtain a steady image
    Thanks to its carbon structure, the SOLOASSIST is stable and vibration-free. It does not shake or tilt the horizon, enabling fatigue-free work.
  • Straightforward and intuitive operation via joystick
    The human hand is the most precise tool at our disposal. Manual work can be performed intuitively without mental stress. That is why you control the SOLOASSIST via an ergonomic joystick – simply simple.
  • Precise endoscope positioning within a unique range of movement
    You determine the image yourself. There are no misunderstan- dings. Positioning is precise and sensitive. Thanks to the unique range of movement, there is no need to adapt the way you work.
  • Unhindered access to the patient site, no bothersome components impeding the trocar area.
    The SOLOASSIST supports the endoscope from above, leaving ample room for your instruments. There is no need to alter your normal workflow.
  • Straightforward handling; ready to operate in just a few minutes
    Straightforward and quick set-up and disassembly. The SOLOASSIST is attached directly on the operating table and covered with a sterile drape while the patient is being prepared for surgery.
  • Reusable. Thanks to a flexible concept of autoclavable components, the SOLOASSIST is immediately ready for the next surgical intervention – no waiting times.

ENDOFIx exo - Passive support arm

Flexibility you need

Flexible assistance system opens up new horizons

Passive support arm for Endoscope positioning

  • Progressive and sensitive adjustment at the push of a button
  • A stable and wobble-free image enhances the quality of surgery.

Stable OP field of vision

  • The system provides surgeons with a stable and rocksteady OP field of vision, even in extreme endoscopic positions.
  • The wide scope of movement provides surgeons with full visibility of the OP site - without any restrictions. There is no need to alter one’s customary way of working.

Safe and sterile procedures

  • The stable image allows surgeons to work in a more relaxed manner, maintaining a reliable view of essentials.
  • Even extreme camera positions can be maintained for as long as required, which is a considerable advantage over manual camera control.
  • The front support arm is also autoclavable. The device as such is covered by a sterile single-use drape.

Straightforward docking

  • Docking the system to the operating table is very simple thanks to the quick-coupling device. If conversion is required, the support arm can be uncoupled from the operating table in just a few seconds.
  • After the procedure, the arm is simply hung onto the trolley.The trolley is fully mobile and is used for storing the ENDOFIX exo.

Among Surgeons and Interventionalists
A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis

"Procedural physicians, such as surgeons and interventional medical specialists, have a high risk for work-related MSDs. This is due to long work hours involving repetitive movements, static and awkward postures, and challenges with instrument design, especially given the rapid rate of innovation in the setting of a diversifying workforce. Ergonomists have described the surgeon’s work environment and working conditions as equal to, if not at times harsher than, those of certain industrial workers." Read the Article >>>
