What is the Symani Surgical System?
The first-of-its-kind robotic platform designed to provide enhanced precision and control, even in the smallest vessels, using sutures between 8-0 to 12-0.
It combines the world’s smallest wristed instruments with tremor-reducing and motion-scaling technologies to address the scale and complexity of microsurgery and supermicrosurgery.
Cart with Macropositioner and Micromanipulators
A portable cart that houses a macropositioner used to move instruments into the operating field and micromanipulators that hold the instruments and enable 7 degrees of freedom.
The ergonomically designed Surgeon Console supports a surgeon’s comfort throughout lengthy procedures, while the OperaAir™ controllers and footswitch provide complete control of the instrumentation. Using principles of teleoperation to replicate natural surgical movements and scale down motion, NanoWrist Instruments act as an extension of natural surgical techniques.
I use Symani mostly, if not exclusively, for lymphedema surgery. My colleagues from the same department will be using it for the breast reconstruction application. But in all reality, the sky is the limit. The human body is full of small things that can be repaired and improved. In the future, the robot might lead to completely unexpected pathways.Professor Alexandru NistorThe Brussels University Hospital, Belgium | Symani User
When I think about breast cancer, another complication that I think about is lymphedema that comes from removing the lymph nodes. Today, there are a very small number of surgeons who can freely work on 0.3mm vessels, the average lymphatic vessel size. This is not only unlocking the technological aspect, but also providing solutions to category diseases previously thought impossible to do.Professor JP HongUniversity of Ulsan College of Medicine and Asan Medical Center, South Korea | Symani Researcher
The benefit of the NanoWrist® instruments is that they are not just forceps and a needle holder, but I can move them like I move my hands. This allows me to be more comfortable and more stable sewing the vessels together. With Symani, the whole procedure is more reliable.Professor Sinikka SuominenHelsinski University Hospital, Finland | Symani User
