FIBER OPTIC SHAPE SENSING

Fiber optic shape sensing technology reconstructs and displays the entire shape of a thin, flexible optical fiber.

When integrated into medical devices, fiber optic provides surgeons and robotic platforms with unprecedented 3D perspective on the location, control and navigation of surgical tools, enables endless opportunities in robotic control, and frees patients from harmful radiative imaging alternatives.

Whenever line of sight is not an option, shape sensing provides the critical information required to make the right decision in the most difficult environments.
