News from Titan's SPORT
"Titan’s Single Port Orifice Robotic Technology (SPORT™) Surgical System, currently under development, comprises a surgeon-controlled single incision robotic platform that includes a 3D vision system and interactive instruments for performing minimally invasive surgery (“MIS”) procedures, and a surgeon workstation provides the surgeon with an interface to the robotic platform and also provides a 3D endoscopic view of inside a patient’s body during MIS procedures.
The SPORT™ Surgical System is being developed with the goal of providing interactive instruments and a 3D vision system capable of being inserted into the patient’s body cavity through a single incision.
The design contemplates a collapsible device that, when collapsed, would be capable of being inserted into the patient’s body cavity through a skin incision of approximately 25mm.
Once inserted, the device is configured to deploy into a working configuration wherein the 3D high definition vision system and interactive multi-articulating instruments would be capable of being controlled by a surgeon at the workstation."
"The SPORT Surgical System delivers:
– Next Generation Surgical Robotic Technology
• Innovative Robotic Platform to Enable Computer-assisted surgery
• Automation and Navigation – Automate tasks and subtasks
• Traditional Surgical Robotic Features
– 3-Dimensional (Stereoscopic) Imaging
– Restores intuitive control
• Enhanced or New Functionality
• Enhanced Ergonomics"
June 9, Titan had its 2015 Annual General meeting. They were named 2015 OTCQX Best 50 performing companies. The system is planned to acquire CE mark in mid-2016 and US product launch in mid-2017.
