Asensus Announces Senhance System Placement at GPR Klinikum Rüsselsheim of Germany
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Dec. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Asensus Surgical, Inc. (NYSE American: ASXC), a medical device company that is digitizing the interface between the surgeon and the patient to pioneer a new era of Performance-Guided Surgery™, today announced that GPR Gesundheits- und Pflegezentrum Klinikum of Rüsselsheim (“GPR”), Germany has entered into an agreement to lease and utilize a Senhance® Surgical System.
“With GPR’s broad laparoscopic use, the Senhance Surgical System is a perfect fit for high-volume surgical specialities like gynecology, urology and general surgery,” said Anthony Fernando, Asensus Surgical President and CEO. “We are thrilled to see the acceleration of traction in Germany, Europe’s largest robotics market, which points to the clinical utility of the Senhance Surgical System and the positive impact on surgical demand.”
The Senhance Surgical System advances clinical intelligence by providing surgeons with augmented intelligence and digital tools to perform consistently superior surgery.
Asensus Surgical’s technology platform, Senhance Surgical System, is the first of its kind digital laparoscopic platform that leverages augmented intelligence to provide unmatched performance and patient outcomes through machine learning. The Senhance Surgical System goes beyond the typical surgical robotic systems, providing surgical assurance through haptic feedback, eye-tracking camera control, 3D visualization, and is the first platform to offer 3mm instruments (the smallest instrument available in the world on a robotic surgical platform). The Senhance Surgical System is powered by the Intelligent Surgical Unit™ (ISU™). The ISU enables machine vision-driven control of the camera for a surgeon by responding to commands and recognizing certain objects and locations in the surgical field, and allows a surgeon to change the visualized field of view using the movement of their instruments.
“We are proud to launch our Senhance surgical program and offer digital surgery to our patients,” said Mr. Achim Neyer, Chief Executive Officer of GPR Hospital. “The Senhance System will be a fantastic addition to our hospital, as the General and Visceral Surgery, Urology, and Gynecology departments can all benefit from the advanced clinical intelligence features combined with a wide array of minimally invasive instrumentation to ultimately deliver better, more predictable outcomes.”
