Offers a more natural, in-line view through each access port Learn More !
The Challenge: The current off-angle, mirror-image view from the laparoscope onto onto the operating room monitors requires that the surgical team have a high level of dexterity and motor skills to perform each surgical maneuver, lengthening learning curves and limiting adoption of minimally invasive procedures.
Our Solution: The VisionPort™ technology provides for a more natural, in-line view of the operative field through each access port, significantly lowering skill threshold and ergonomic stress. Furthermore, and completely unique to the VisionPort™ technology, the surgical team can utilize multiple views of the operative field when incorporating multiple VisionPort™ devices into a procedure.
Instruments are always in view, limiting accidental injury such as cuts and burns Learn More !
The Challenge: When using conventional laparoscopes, the surgical team can intermittently lose sight of instrument tips, sharps and electro-cautery instruments, leading to injury of adjacent organs and post-operative infections.
Our Solution: The VisionPort™ technology provides for a continuous, in-line view of each surgical instrument throughout an entire surgical procedure, keeping instrument tips in full view of the surgical team at all times.
Reduction of at least one surgical incision and access port Learn More !
The Challenge: When conventional laparoscopic systems are used, a separate incision is required in the patient for the placement of a dedicated access port through which the laparoscope is placed.
Our Solution: By incorporating visualization technology into each and every access port, the VisionPort™ eliminates the requirement for a laparoscope and the separate incision/access port required for its use. Reducing the number of skin incisions, and thus the number of post-operative scars, improves patient cosmesis following their surgical procedure.
The VisionPort enters as a trocar, functions as a laparoscope and deploys as a camera and an instrument channel.
Lowers skill threshold and ergonomic stress Learn More !
The Challenge: Only incremental changes have occurred in laparoscopic visualization technology over the past 30 years, and current devices have failed to address multiple, important issues that result in unnecessary difficulty when performing minimally invasive surgery: an off-angle, mirror-image view is used by the surgical team, the intermittent loss of view of instrument tips can lead to inadvertent injury to the patient, and the scope regularly has to be removed from the body and repositioned, causing the lens to ‘fog up’, limiting visibility – to name a few.
Our Solution: The VisionPort™ technology combines four instruments (laparoscope, camera, light source and access port/trocar) into one device, allowing for visualization through each access port. This novel and patent-protected design provides for a more natural, in-line view of the operative field, gives the surgeon complete control of visualization and allows the surgical team to keep surgical instruments in view at all times – greatly simplifying laparoscopic surgery and increasing surgical team efficiency.
Surgical assistant no longer required to hold and position the laparoscope Learn More !
The Challenge: When using conventional laparoscopic systems, the surgeon depends on the skills of an assistant to hold and position the laparoscope to achieve an optimal view of the organs and the instruments being used by the surgical team.
Our Solution: The VisionPort™ incorporates visualization technology into each access port being used by the surgeon, giving the surgeon complete control of both the visual field and instruments throughout a procedure. Utilizing the VisionPort technology eliminates the need for an assistant to be present to hold and position a separate scope, opening up space at the operating room table and decreasing the stress and complexity of the procedure.
Reduced requirement to reposition, clean and de-fog the scope Learn More !
The Challenge: When using conventional laparoscopes, the instruments being used by different members of the surgical team are not always in view. This can result in injury to adjacent organs, but also to the regular clashing or ‘sword fighting’ between instruments that often leads to surgical team inefficiency and frustration. Additionally, with the need to regularly reposition the scope for a different view through the various access ports, the scope is removed from the warm body to the cool air of the operating room. This causes the lens to fog up several times during a procedure, limiting visibility and taking up valuable time as the scope is regularly removed and de-fogged.
Our Solution: The VisionPort™ incorporates visualization technology into each access port, eliminating the need to remove and reposition the scope to appreciate different views of the surgical field. Additionally, The VisionPort™ technology provides for a continuous, in-line view of each surgical instrument throughout an entire surgical procedure, keeping instrument tips in full view of the surgical team at all times, reducing the likelihood of injury to adjacent organs and reducing instrument clashing and ‘sword fighting’.
