Product description and innovation synopsis:
The ilex55 is a revolutionary mobile imaging system with onboard multi-modality video integration on a 55 inch screen. Offering options to display four images simultaneously with its split-screen capability, images from C Arms, cameras, ultrasounds, PACS, or hemodynamics can all be seen on one monitor with remote control video formatting. The 4K imaging displays clearer images than ever before with calibrated surgical color. Ilex55’s mobility and 20 inch vertical adjustability allows for it to be configured to any room or procedural need, providing budgetary and ergonomic advantages with no downtime during installation and maximum flexibility.
What sets this product apart from others available in the industry?
As the first mobile video integration platform, it is the only of its kind that can be moved and positioned where needed in any room. A simple remote control changes sources or the screens layout from single, split, or quad mode. Its motorized elevation offers additional flexibility and can free up space around the table improving patient access and work flow. Because it is mobile, there are no expensive installation costs and it can be upgraded with ease as video technology evolves.
How does this product benefit the surgical team and aid in better outcomes?
The ilex55’s mobility, image quality and multimodality video integration provides many benefits to surgical teams. Because it is not mounted in one stationary location like monitors mounted on a wall, it can be moved closer and adjusted to the line of sight to provide a much more comfortable experience and increase room ergonomics. Its mobility also has been said to reduce unpredictability in room scheduling because it can adapt to any room. Along with mobility, doctors have stated that the quality and size of the imaging on the device enhanced their daily experiences and clinical outcomes during surgery. Ilex55 customers observe and state the ilex55’s image sharpness, clarity and size provides increased accuracy as well as dose reduction, as the C-Arm Mag function is needed less during surgery. Its multimodality video integration displays images all on one screen so that surgical staff can look to one source for all of their imaging needs.
