CV Medical’s NuCART Wins Prize

cv-medicalCompView Medical (CVM) has announced that NuCART won the “Best In Show” prize in the annual Excellence in Surgical Products contest from Surgical Products magazine.

NuCART is the mobile version of the popular NuBOOM system, extending advantages of turn-key video integration that can be wheeled to the point of care. NuCART provides HD images to surgeons during minimally invasive surgery where mobile fluoroscopy, ultrasound and surgical video are used. NuCART also provides an equipment organization system that removes trip hazards and clutter, to improve staff and patient safety. The NuCART meets the budgetary and technical requirements of hospitals that are adopting modular image guided hybrid ORs for procedures such as urology, GI, interventional (vascular and radiology) and general surgery.

NuCART is designed to exceed the ergonomic adjustability required by surgeons when utilizing mobile C-Arms, video cameras, and ultrasound during MIS. Workflow compatibility with mobile C-Arms is especially important because the days of ORs being regularly populated with fixed X-ray equipment are rapidly waning.

NuCART is mobile, not built-in. The cost-saving approach of a mobile boom system accommodates more flexible surgery scheduling because each OR can be easily reconfigured. •
