Intuitive Surgical, Inc. and Trumpf Medical, a division of Hill-Rom Holdings, Inc., announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration cleared Intuitive Surgical’s 510 (k) to offer Integrated Table Motion for the da Vinci® Xi® Surgical System in the United States.
Integrated Table Motion combines the da Vinci Xi, Intuitive Surgical’s latest robotic-assisted surgical system, and Trumpf Medical’s operating table, the TruSystem® 7000dV, to allow surgeons and anesthesiologists the ability to make a comprehensive range of table adjustments efficiently during surgery.
Integrated Table Motion also gives surgical teams the ability to leverage the TruSystem 7000dv operating table’s capabilities to:
- Optimally position the table so that gravity exposes anatomy during multi-quadrant da Vinci System procedures
- Maximize reach and access to target anatomy – enabling surgeons to interact with tissue at an ideal working angle
- Reposition the table during the procedure to enhance anesthesiologists’ care of the patient
The da Vinci Surgical System and TruSystem® 7000dV table are synchronized in movement — the table’s positioning is relayed to the da Vinci Surgical System and is met with an intuitive adjustment of its instrument arms, boom and endoscope to maintain consistent orientation to the patient’s anatomy. Intuitive Surgical and Trumpf Medical spent five years working together to make the integration of the two systems possible.
Integrated Table Motion for the da Vinci Xi Surgical System launched in Europe after receiving CE marking in June 2015.
