Startup Ocutrx Technologies (Irvine, Calif.) announced today that it is expanding from external visualization augmented reality (AR) and extended reality (XR) techniques to a laparoscopic visualization key-hole instrument called Scopetrx.
The wireless laparoscopic swivel camera instrument is designed to allow the surgeon to have an unobstructed, rotating view with a 100-degree field of vision and 4K resolution. The camera subsystem swivels on the main barrel providing a 360º roll, while the camera extends on a multi-axis pivot support permitting another 270° of yaw and pitch rotation. This innovation lets the surgeon see around “corners” with much more depth and visibility than other laparoscopic instruments being used inside the body today, according to Ocutrx.
