Synaptive’s new Modus V’s mechanization enables surgeons to function continuously without taking their hands off from the operative field to adjust the microscope.
FREMONT, CA: To capture patient data and deliver it when and where it matters most for clinical decision making, Synaptive Medical, a frontrunner in automation and robotics, announced a strategic business development into the spinal surgery market. As part of the progression into the sector, Synaptive revealed plans for marketing collaborations with Stryker’s advanced guidance technologies. The partnership can see the utilization of the robotically managed digital microscope, Modus V.
Synaptive Medical is a Toronto-based medical technology and device company. The enterprise designs software and hardware technologies that cross conventional barriers in hospitals and enhance patient care in and beyond the operating room. Synaptive’s Modus V and integrated BrightMatter solutions comprise surgical planning, visualization, navigation, and an informatics platform. They provide leading healthcare systems and clinicians the data they need to ensure the best probable outcomes for patients.
Stryker is one of the globally leading medical technology firms. The organization offers innovative services and products in orthopedics, surgical, spine, and neurotechnology that facilitate improve hospital and patient outcomes.
Synaptive’s initial product offering, the BrightMatter suite of products, focused on enabling surgeons to perform less invasive, patient-specific approaches in sophisticated cranial procedures like tumors or stroke. Originally launched as part of the cranial offering, Modus V was found by surgeons to offer similar benefits for minimally invasive spinal procedures.
A high-power visualization tool, Modus V’s robotic arm, runs automatically based on the positions of tracked surgical instruments. The mechanization allows surgeons to perform ceaselessly while not taking their hands off from the operative field to regulate the microscope. The method, along with other features like hands-free focal depth control and automatic lighting optimization, facilitates doctors with an uncompromised view during vital moments of each delicate procedure.
Critical to the strategic push into the spine market is the enterprise’s development of an existing co-marketing agreement with Stryker. Initially beamed at Synaptive’s surgical planning technology, BrightMatter plan, the extension will present surgeons with more extended access to an innovative application for visualization in Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) progresses in spinal procedures.
