Robotic Laparoscope Holding Solutions

The FreeHand v1.2 system is a laparoscopic scope and camera controller which robotically manipulates a laparoscope through 3 axes. It allows you to directly control the pan, tilt and zoom movement of the laparoscope without requiring you to take your hands off the tools you are working with.

Product Benefits:

  • a tremor free image
  • comfortable for surgeon
  • get the most from HD and 3D camera technology
  • allows solo-surgery
  • frees up camera assistant
  • fixed procedure cost
  • saves time
  • re-engages laparoscope in precisely the same position should the scope need cleaning
  • back to back procedures

From a clinical perspective, the FreeHand provides a solution for holding the image a surgeon is viewing absolutely still and for moving it completely predictably - guided directly by the person who counts. The system is physically small and only has moving parts in the direct vicinity of the laparoscope which means there are ergonomic benefits for procedures where a surgeon might otherwise compete for space with a human assistant holding the camera.

FreeHand is configured into two main parts: the reusable control and robotic system, and a consumable pack which consists of a sterile zoom to hold the laparoscope and a sterile sleeve which covers the reusable part of the system. This configuration allows the system to be used consistently throughout a day’s list of procedures.

From a business perspective, the per-procedure cost is low and the system provides an consistently available service which means, once integrated, it will make your theatres less reliant on the availability of human camera holders - making cancellations less likely and allowing resources to be focused on more important areas of healthcare provision.
