Transport System Extends Utilization of Robotic Surgery

A new transport system will allow the Magellan robotic system to be a shared hospital resource, giving multiple physician specialties access in several settings.

The Magellan Transport System, which can be operated by just a single clinician, is designed to move the Magellan robotic arm between procedure rooms, facilitating greater hospital utilization by enabling the Magellan robotic arm to be shared among different procedure rooms. The transport system possesses a hydraulic lift and a release pedal to help level the robotic arm with the surgical table.

Adjustable legs that can extend to 28 cm in each direction and lockable wheels assist the operator to correctly position the Magellan Robotic System in different environments. Other features include a space to neatly store cables and other system equipment during transport. A slidable console moves quickly across the carriage to quickly align with the robotic arm. The Magellan Transport System is a product of Hansen Medical (Mountain View, CA, USA).

“With the launch of the Magellan Transport System, we are delivering on our commitment to ensure that all customers are able to utilize our systems in the broadest possible way,” said Cary Vance, President and CEO of Hansen Medical. “The Magellan Transport System enables hospitals to expand access to more physicians interested in performing robotic endovascular procedures.”

The Magellan Robotic System is intended to facilitate navigation in the peripheral vasculature and provide a conduit for manual placement of therapeutic devices using robotic catheter control of two separate bend sites on a single catheter, as well as robotic manipulation of standard guidewires. The system reduces radiation exposure and fatigue by allowing the physician to operate while seated comfortably at a remote workstation away from the radiation field, and without wearing heavy lead as required in conventional endovascular procedures.
