True Digital Surgery (TDS) and Aesculap Inc. have announced that the Aesculap Aeos Robotic Digital Microscope is now available in the United States. This innovative platform enables surgeons to execute precision movements in certain procedures, including neurosurgery, spine, and ear, nose and throat operations, through a multi-axis robotic arm. The Aesculap Aeos Robotic Digital Microscope adds state-of-the art software capabilities, providing a 3D digital visualization display, customizable Image Modes functionality, and fluorescence backlighting to enhance the precision needs that surgeons require for complex surgical procedures.
In the midst of the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, TDS and Aesculap Inc. are launching the innovative Aesculap Aeos Robotic Digital Microscope to also offer potential improvements to safety and efficiency during surgeries, as the heads-up display can be viewed simultaneously by all health care workers in the operating room while wearing PPE.
The innovative Image Modes feature of the Aesculap Aeos Robotic Digital Microscope delivers augmentation capabilities without the need for an overlay, and the platform also includes 3D details with outstanding depth-of-field, fluorescence backlighting capabilities and a 10x optical zoom that delivers full resolution regardless of magnification level. As an exclusively digital microscope platform, it can be customized with simple software updates.
“We are proud to bring the fully-digital Aesculap Aeos Robotic Digital Microscope to market, with breakthrough technology that we like to say can ‘see beyond the tissue’ and provide a solution to the limitations of conventional surgical microscopes, especially during this challenging time for the global medical community,” said Aidan Foley, chairman and CEO, True Digital Surgery. “This platform was developed with True Digital Surgery’s unmatched experience in 3D visualization and vivid imagery, coupled with the invaluable insights and global sales and support capabilities gained from our strategic partnership with Aesculap.”
“We are thrilled to collaborate with TDS and offer this unparalleled technology to U.S. surgeons and medical systems,” said Chuck DiNardo, president of Aesculap Inc. “The Aesculap Aeos Robotic Digital Microscope is a strategically important addition to our U.S. portfolio, which provides healthcare providers with industry-leading advancements developed through a responsive approach that is focused on innovation, efficiency and sustainability.”
