Future development at Intuitive
Intuitive has already have a major hit with the Xi last year, yet, we may soon see more!
"There is a product in development that could revolutionize not just how we treat a common chronic illness, but potentially the entire health industry"
"We may also get more information on some new accessories for the Xi, including a stapler and a new table that can be rotated to allow gravity to help provide traction for the surgeon.
Investors should also pay attention to management's comments on its next machine, the da Vinci Sp, which is a single port machine allowing all the instruments to go into a single site on a patient's body or even through a natural orifice like the mouth or vagina. The machine is scheduled to begin customer testing this year; it could enable Intuitive Surgical to expand into new procedures or allow for faster recovery times for procedures currently performed using its other machines".
