Hansen Medical, Inc., a global leader in intravascular robotics, today announced that it will exhibit its Magellan™ Robotic System at the 2013 Vascular Annual Meeting® of the Society for Vascular Surgery from May 30 - June 1 at the Moscone West Convention Center in San Francisco, CA. The Company will be exhibiting the Magellan Robotic System and conducting product demonstrations at Booth 301.
"We are excited to showcase our Magellan Robotic System at this important annual meeting of leading vascular surgeons," said Bruce Barclay, President and CEO of Hansen Medical. "Based on the over 150 vascular cases that have now been performed to date, as well as the feedback received from clinicians worldwide and the extensive pre-clinical work previously completed, we are confident that this product has the potential to enhance the way physicians navigate the vasculature. The Magellan Robotic System and Catheter give physicians maximum flexibility and control through independent distal tip control of a catheter and a sheath, as well as through robotic manipulation of a standard guidewire from a centralized, remote workstation. Moreover, this proprietary technology is designed to deliver predictable catheter navigation of peripheral vessels."
About the Magellan™ Robotic System
Hansen Medical's Magellan Robotic System is based upon the flexible robotic technology incorporated in the Sensei-X® Robotic Catheter System currently sold in the U.S. and Europe, which has been used in over 10,000 patients, but includes a number of key enhancements. In particular, the Magellan Robotic System:
- Provides solid catheter stability for placement of therapeutic devices.
- Is designed to enable predictable procedure times and increased case throughput.
- Allows for independent, individual robotic control of the distal tips of both the outer sheath and the inner leader catheter, as well as robotic manipulation of standard guidewires.
- Is designed to allow for sufficient extension inside the body to access hard to reach peripheral anatomy.
- Preserves the open architecture featured in the Sensei System to allow for the subsequent use of many 6F therapeutic devices on the market today.
- Is designed to potentially reduce physician radiation exposure and fatigue by employing a remote physician workstation.
