As of today, KB Medical's AQrate system was cleared in Europe. Well done!
"2016-06-13 KB Medical is proud to announce it has received the CE Mark certificate for its AQrate Robotic Assistance System, indicated for precise positioning of surgical instruments and spinal implants during general spinal surgery. The AQrate Robotic Assistance System offers unmatched precision at surgeon’s fingertips, specifically designed for spinal surgery;
- Provides haptic steering and force feedback allowing steady and accurate trajectory
- Integrates existing standard instruments
- Integrates well in existing surgical flow
- Small footprint of the system
- Retractable wheels ensuring a maximum stability during surgery
The AQrate Robotic Assistance System is indicated for precise positioning of surgical instruments and spinal implants during general spinal surgery. It may be used in open, minimally invasive or percutaneous procedures with or without assistance of a navigation system.
The AQrate Robotic Assistance System provides to the surgeon a tool that is positioned in space by the robotic arm. It provides user interfaces allowing a surgeon to interact with the robotic system directly from a sterile field. The tool holder integrates sensors which can measure forces and torques applied by the surgeon thus enabling to precisely guide surgical instruments.
