REACH3D is World’s only provider of multiple size endoscopes for 3D surgery

Breakthrough offers surgeons more and safer options


October 19, 2015 - REACH 3D, an S3D industry innovation leader, has announced the availability of multiple lengths, diameters and angles of 3D endoscopes for 3D surgery for use with its SoloSIGHT Single Light Path 3D HD Endoscopy Platform (SLP 3D).  Previously 3D surgical endoscopes availability was much like the old Henry Ford story – “You can have any color you want as long as it is black” Surgeons could have any size 3D endoscopes they wanted as long as it was 10-12 millimeters in diameter, 315mm long and 0 or 30 degree. There were no other options… until now.

Kevin May REACH3D’s Chief Science Officer explains: Due to the innovative design of the SoloSIGHT platform our endoscopes require only a single light path. This means they can be created in any diameter, length or angle that a 2D endoscope can be made in.  Where our competitors offer only one option REACH3D offers many. This includes lengths from 100mm to 440mm, diameters from 3mm to 10mm and angles such as 0, 15, 30, 45, 75 degrees as well as specialty scopes in almost any kind of configuration.

Mr. May continued: The availability of these multiple scope options open up a vastly larger universe of procedures that can now take advantage of the many benefits of 3D not the least of which are enhanced surgical speed, accuracy and safety.  Finally skull based surgery, pediatrics, arthroscopy and many more surgical specialties will for the first time be able to utilize 3D while others such as GYN are thrilled to have a smaller diameter 3D scope in order to reduce scarring. We look forward to continuing to bringing just these kinds of innovations to the medical device market.

REACH3D provides 3D technology for UPMC ENT surgical Robot training.

 

Advanced 3D technology allows leap forward in training efficacy

 

July 24-26, 2015 (Pittsburgh, PA) - The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, a 2015 US News and World Report Top 15 facility, once again tapped REACH3D to support a ground breaking  training program.  UPMC provided Surgical Robotics training for Ear Nose and Throat procedures utilizing stereo 3D imagery.   The stereo 3D imagery was provided by REACH3D. The course creation was supported by MIS Solutions’ training professionals.

 

Once again UPMC staff noted that there was a very strong turnout of surgeons, many from across the country, for the course. The availability of multiple real-time 3D views of the surgeons perspective as well as playback of 3D recordings from previous procedures significantly enhanced the effectiveness of the course.

 

Pete Carnegie, CEO of MIS Solutions explained: “The course presented a picture-perfect opportunity to support the growth of the kinds of skill enhancement that MIS Solutions is dedicated to offering the growing global community of surgeons utilizing surgical robots”.

 

The 3d Vision equipment provided by REACH3D allowed the surgical staff, for the very first time, the same stereo 3D imagery that the surgeon sees (previously they were limited to 2D only viewing). The shared view enhances team communication and effectiveness while also allowing recordings of the procedure for later training and/or patient education

REACH3D DEBUTS WORLD’S FIRST 5MM 3D HD ENDOSCOPE PRODUCT LINE AT AMERICAN UROLOGIC ASSOCIATION ANNUAL MEETING
 

Single Light Path 3D technology allows leap forward in surgical efficiency

 

May 17, 2014 (Orlando, FL) - The largest meetings of Urology professionals in the world is a fitting place for the initial presentation of SoloSIGHT 3D, the world’s first 5mm 3D HD endoscope. REACH3D’s Single Light Path 3D HD Endoscope product line provides a number of breakthrough features for 3D endoscopy.

“Our reception at the show thus far has been phenomenal,” said Clif Parker, CEO of REACH3D. Urological surgeons from around the world have shown strong interest in the technology as well as a large number of domestic and international distributors.

Among the many benefits brought by REACH3D’s ability to create 3D HD from a Single Light Path (one “eye”), some of the most important are:
• Zero Learning Curve – The endoscope is operated exactly like a 2D endoscope including the ability to rotate the scope 3600, yet provides 3D HD imagery. Surgeons no longer have to change their surgical process in order to receive the benefits of 3D.
• Unique Imagery – The imagery appears as 2D until 3D glasses are used. Gone are the days of Blurry / Ghosting images that are of no value. Now visitors to the OR can always have at least a clear 2D image to view and 3D is only a pair of glasses away.
• Light Weight and Small Diameter – The Single Light Path endoscope is identical in weight to a 2D endoscope (far lighter than current competitor 3D scopes). At 5mm in diameter, the SoloSIGHT platform brings 3D to surgical specialties whose requirements for small diameter scopes previously meant that 3D was not an option. These include Pediatrics, Neurology, Orthopaedics, Spine, ENT and many others.

REACH3D TECHNOLOGY CHOSEN FOR SOCIETY OF THORACIC SURGEONS 50TH ANNUAL MEETING
 

Leonardo 3D Vision system utilized at STS University

 

February 2, 2014 (Orlando, FL) - REACH3D, a 3D industry innovation leader, recently supported STS University as part of the 50th Annual meeting of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons in Orlando, Florida. The REACH3D Leonardo 3D Vision System was utilized to provide surgeons a Stereo 3D view of a cutting edge Mitral Valve repair procedure performed on a Davinci Surgical Robot.

Clif Parker, CEO, noted: Being given the opportunity to support surgeon training at STS University is a high honor. It is typically a 3+ year process to be allowed to support these classes yet REACH3D was invited within only a couple of months of being introduced. We feel this to be recognition of both product quality and the added value that the LEO 3D system brings to any type of surgical robot training or actual robotic procedures.

Mr. Parker also noted that without the LEO 3D system the surgeons choices would have been a 2D view (a much less successful format for understanding the intricacies of this procedure) or having to view the only moments of the procedure in 3D by utilizing the robot ( unacceptable given the time frame of the event and the number of attendees). The ability to allow a 3D view to the classroom of leading thoracic surgeons was the difference between success and failure for this portion of the STS University and REACH3D accomplished it with ease and Full HD 3D imagery.

Surgeons

Benefits to Surgeons

REACH3D Medical is capable of supporting all the 3D visualization needs of Surgeons.


The SoloSIGHT 3D HD platform provides the surgeon a superior depth of field combined with precise hand-eye coordination. This is especially import as 3D vision supports faster, more accurate grasping and knots, enhances suturing and dissection efficiency by making it easier to focus within a certain depth plane, provides safer, more accurate diagnostic & surgical procedures by differentiating objects within visual fields and more accurate eye/hand coordination due to the brain working more effectively with 3D vision.
