Research & Development

Our steering technology offers optimal navigation in the surgical area. We are continuously developing new applications for minimally invasive surgery, in close collaboration with R&D partners in hospitals and universities. In addition, we keep our finger on the pulse of ongoing research lines on the cutting edge of surgery and precision mechanics.

Cardiac Bioptflex

Short research project summary

Representative cardiac biopsies can be performed easier, cheaper and safer with the BioptFlex. This new instrument for intervention cardiologists is being developed, validated and made ready
together with users from the UMC Groningen.


Short research project summary

With a steerable catheter and guidewire, diagnosis and treatment for the patient’s outer airways (e.g. lung cancer) can be facilitated with greater precision and fewer X-rays. By using sensors, the specialist navigates the steerable catheter and guidewire in a patient-specific virtual lung model to the desired location.


Short research project summary

The Neuroflex provides access to the pituitary gland through the nose, minimizing the number of instrument changes and conflicts with the other instruments needed simultaneously in the nasal cavity. This instrument is under development in collaboration with neurosurgeons and ENT surgeons at UMC Groningen.
