Niobe® Robotic Magnetic Navigation System

The Stereotaxis remote magnetic navigation system utilizes two permanent magnets mounted on pivoting arms that are enclosed within a stationary housing, with one magnet on either side of the patient table. During a procedure, the physician guides the catheter movement by simply moving a computer mouse from a room adjacent to the patient but outside of the x-ray fluoroscopy field.

By magnetically controlling the working tip of the interventional device, the physician maintains the same degree of control regardless of number of turns or distance traveled.  This provides the ability to safely access anatomic areas unreachable by other approaches.

Benefits of the system include:

Vdrive® Robotic Navigation System

The Vdrive robotic navigation system with Niobe ES magnetic navigation system provides breakthrough navigation and stability for diagnostic and ablation devices designed with key features to assist in the delivery of better ablations.

Key Features

  • Provides remote, robotic control of diagnostic devices
  • Provides precise movement of devices
  • Maintains stability of devices

Clinical Benefits

  • Reduced need to re-scrub for positioning
  • Reduced need for dedicated diagnostic catheter operator
  • Potential for reduced radiation exposure to the physician, staff and patients
  • Patient table controller enables robotic control from the bedside to facilitate diagnostic catheter movements

Components of the Vdrive System

V-Sono™ ICE catheter manipulator

Provides control of Biosense Webster SoundStar™ or Siemens AcuNav™ ICE catheters

V-Loop™ variable loop catheter manipulator

Provides control of Biosense Webster LASSO™ 2515 circular mapping catheters and LASSO™ 2515 NAV catheters

V-CAS™ catheter advancement system

Controls both the magnetic catheter body and a standard fixed-curve sheath

Odyssey® Information Management Solution

Electrophysiology (EP) labs are inundated with many different systems which must be accessed separately. This often leads to increased setup time and missed clinical events that can add minutes or hours to procedures. Hospitals and physicians can often be challenged to find ways to instantly access clinical information, promote clinical consultation, as well as training.  The Odyssey® solution includes an array of technologies that empowers hospitals to drive world-class EP programs.

Odyssey Vision™ System

An EP lab houses various systems, often sourced from multiple vendors.  As a result, clinical data exists in silos, is often lost and inaccessible, and case reviews lack full procedure content. This Odyssey lab solution aggregates and integrates a vast number of clinical lab information into one large screen and a single mouse and keyboard control.  This allows the physicians to focus on a consolidated view of the most relevant information during each step of the procedure and maximize procedure efficiency.

Odyssey Cinema™ System

An EP lab houses various systems, often sourced from multiple vendors.  As a result, clinical data exists in silos, is often lost and inaccessible, and case reviews lack full procedure content.
