Hansen Medical has supplied its 100th Sensei Robotic Catheter System to the University of Michigan. The company got the FDA approval for the Sensei System back in May, 2007 and considers the shipping as a major milestone.
The Sensei X Robotic Catheter System features an advanced and flexible robotic platform. It offers high-quality three-dimensional visualization and three-dimensional catheter control with durability and precision during catheter-based electrophysiology procedures.
The instinctive motion control technology of the Sensei X System enables accurate positioning of the catheter, which is done by shifting the hand motions at the workplace to maneuver the catheter within a patient’s heart.
According to the President and Chief Executive Officer of Hansen Medical, Bruce Barclay, the transport of the 100th Sensei System provides evidence that a large number of hospitals and electrophysiologists are relying on the company’s flexible robotics technology.
Director of Arrhythmia Service at C.S. Mott Children's Hospital in University of Michigan, Dr. David J. Bradley, stated that the Sensei X System can be installed in their hospital to treat adult congenital and pediatric patients.
