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.

- Enhancing the Precision and Safety of Minimally Invasive Spine SurgeryMinimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) is an approach that is becoming increasingly popular in the treatment of spinal conditions. The traditional open surgery approach for spinal surgeries is often associated with significant tissue damage, blood loss, prolonged hospital stays, and recovery periods, and increased risk of complications. Minimally invasive techniques aim to minimize these risks…
- Advancing the Safety and Efficacy of Atherectomy Procedures Using Shape Sensing TechnologyAtherectomy is a medical procedure that involves removing plaque buildup from inside an artery. Plaque is a fatty substance that can accumulate inside blood vessels, leading to a narrowing of the artery and reduced blood flow. Atherectomy is used to treat this condition, known as atherosclerosis. During an atherectomy, a thin catheter is inserted into…
