Niobe

Robotic Magnetic Navigation System

The Stereotaxis Niobe® Robotic Magnetic Navigation System consists of two robotically-controlled magnets next to the table. During a procedure a physician uses an intuitive computer interface to adjust the magnetic field around the patient. This allows a physician to precisely direct and steer a catheter that has a magnet embedded in its tip.

Benefits of Robotic Magnetic Navigation include:

Robotic Magnetic Navigation System

Smaller.

Lighter.

Faster.

Genesis is a leap forward in Robotic Magnetic Navigation technology and represents the future of robotics in electrophysiology. We have completely redesigned the magnets and the way they are manipulated, providing patients, physicians and hospitals with the differentiated benefits of Niobe in an architecture that is faster, smaller, lighter and more flexible.

The Future of Robotics in Electrophysiology.

The Genesis System utilizes smaller magnets that rotate along their center of mass. This allows for unprecedented responsiveness to physician control. Across a broad range of navigational routines, the Genesis System is 70% to 80% faster than Niobe.1

The entire System is significantly smaller and designed to improve the patient experience while on the operating table, provide physicians and nurses with greater access to the patient during the procedure, and increase space in the labs for an enhanced work environment.

The magnets are held on flexible and rugged robotic arms, greatly increasing the potential range of motion of the System. This allows for wider x-ray angulation and serves as a platform for future innovation.

Across all aspects of the System we have incorporated modern technology to support our overarching effort of improving performance, reliability and size.

The Genesis™ Robotic Magnetic Navigation System is CE marked. While Genesis may be marketed and sold in European Union and other jurisdictions, it is not available for commercial sale in the United States.

The complete package.

Stereotaxis Imaging Model S is an advanced x-ray system specifically designed for electrophysiology, tightly integrated with the Genesis Robotic Magnetic Navigation System and compatible with Niobe. Stereotaxis Imaging incorporates modern flat panel detector technology to support radiation reduction and clear image quality. It includes a broad range of features, including beam collimation, adjustable frame rates, variable SID and more to further support radiation reduction and clear image quality.

Stereotaxis Imaging is offered in combination with Genesis to reduce the cost of acquisition, the ongoing cost of ownership, and the complexity of installation of a robotics electrophysiology practice. With a single source for all services – architectural planning, installation, and ongoing servicing and maintenance of the technology – we can offer hospitals and physicians a more efficient, pleasant and cost-effective solution.

Information Management Solution

Odyssey Vision™ System

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 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. The Odyssey 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.
