We have extensive experience in performing telementoring and telesurgical applications between our facility and various hospitals around the world. Four ISDN lines are typically used for the bidirectional audio-video connection and the control of instrumentation and robotics. Depending on the application remote control is performed for various laparoscopy instruments, our robotic laparoscope manipulator (Lap Driver), or image-guided robots (PAKY-RCM) .
a. Teleoperated Karl Storz laparoscopy
b. BW-RCM robot with the Lap Driver supporting a tissue retractor
Driver was made to support various laparoscopic instruments
in as compact robot using the BW-RCM base.
The robot presents similar functionality with the AESOP robot in a miniaturized size, with steadier positioning, and more precise targeting and tracking capabilities.
