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.


Steady field of vision

  • The system provides surgeons with a stable and rock-steady field of vision, even in extreme endoscope positions.
  • The wide scope of movement allows surgeons full visibility of the operating sites - without any restrictions. There is no need to alter your customary way of working.

Safe and sterile work

  • A stable image allows surgeons to work in a more relaxed manner, providing them with a reliable view of essentials.
  • Even extreme camera positions can be retained as long as required, which is a considerable advantage over manual camera control.
  • Joystick, joint and camera support are autoclavable. The SOLOASSIST itself is covered by a sterile single- use drape.


Precise robotic control

  • With minimally invasive procedures, surgeons can work with both hands. Logically, the SOLOASSIST is controlled via a joystick positioned on the instrument.
  • The ergonomic joystick can be adapted to fit almost all commercially available handpieces by using a clamp mount.
  • The functional design of the joystick facilitates handling. The keypad enhances the safety of surgery.

Dynamic manual positioning

  • At the push of a button, the arm can be moved and pulled into the required position. When the button is released, the arm is locked immediately, remaining in the set position.
  • The unlocking button is located on the distal end of the arm in an easily accessible position.

Straightforward docking

  • Docking to the operating table is extremely simple thanks to the quick-coupling device.
  • After the surgical procedure is completed, the arm is hung onto the trolley. The trolley is fully mobile and serves for storing the SOLOASSIST.

Benifits to the Surgen

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.
