Hansen Medical, a developer of robotic technology for 3D control of catheter movement, has launched a product enhancement to its Sensei X Robotic Catheter System, a robotic platform used by physicians during cardiac arrhythmia procedures.
The new product has three main components:
- Expands compatibility of Hansen's CoHesion 3D Visualization Module with St. Jude Medical's EnSite Velocity cardiac mapping system, facilitating the ability in 3D to visualize, locate and robotically control catheters within the heart to diagnose heart rhythm disorders.
- Introduces a new feature of the IntelliSense Fine Force Technology Interface, called IS Flex, which is a feedback mechanism the user experiences when using the instinctive motion controller (IMC) on the Sensei X system. As the IntelliSense forces rise, the motion scale ratio is adjusted so the IMC motion results in a smaller catheter tip motion. IS Flex is currently available in the European Union, and is under review by the FDA.
- Adds 3D Instinctive View, which provides Sensei X users with a feature that allows for synchronization of the Sensei X view to that of a 3D anatomical map.
