Stereotaxis at Heart Rhythm 2014

Stereotaxis will be exhibiting at Heart Rhythm 2014 in Moscone South, San Francisco CA. Visit us at Booth 2002!

Now Available in the US – Vdrive™ Duo with V-Sono™ System

The Vdrive Duo with V-Sono System is now commercially available for sale in the United States. An expansion to the Vdrive family of products, the Vdrive Duo System includes a second robotic arm offering remote control and manipulation of compatible devices.  Currently indicated for use only with the V-Sono Intracardiac Echocardiography Catheter Manipulator, this update provides a pathway for expanded utility of the Vdrive platform when additional devices are cleared by FDA for use in combination.  First released in Europe in 2011, the Vdrive System provides breakthrough navigation and stability for diagnostic and ablation devices designed to assist in the delivery of better ablations.
