Robotic instruments allow for all ranges-of-motion that the human wrist allows. This enables greater maneuverability and precision during surgery.
Progress in O.R. Robotics da Vinci S 2008®1
- 3D - HD with 20 percent more viewing area
- Digital zoom: 12 - 30x
- Fourth arm
- 540° wrist action with 6° of freedom
- Filters hand tremor
- Motion scaling: 1:2,3,5
- Ergonomic surgeon's console
Miniaturization of the instruments allow for less trauma and smaller incisions to the patient while still allowing for the precision necessary for optimal surgery.
Magnified, stereoscopic (3-D) visual camera
Miniature, 8-mm diameter robotic instruments
The dual lens system of the laparoscopic camera offers the surgeon 3-dimensional (3D) visualization during surgery. Binocular images allow the operating surgeon to appreciate depth and optimize prostate dissection.
