Smith & Nephew Offers Digital OR Integration
The Smith & Nephew Digital OR is an integrated operating room solution utilizing emerging digital technologies to benefit the patient, surgical team and facility.
The Digital OR can improve patient care by increasing efficiencies within the operating room, improving surgeon control in the operative environment, and providing the means for superior surgeon and customer education. The revolutionary products that can be integrated include new advances such as image-guided surgery, robotics and progressive scan camera systems.
The CONDOR Control System Platform integrates the digital OR as a customized platform providing future-proofing, ease-of-use and convenience during surgical procedures. The company said medical device control and audio-visual routing are combined into one system. With the touch of a button or the sound of a voice, the surgical team can optimize equipment, control multimedia and configure the room to the specific desires of a particular surgeon.
The CONDOR Audio-Visual Control System enables real-time distribution of the highest quality video, audio and computer signals within the OR, inside the facility and around the world.
The CONDOR Medical Control System helps maximize clinical focus and efficiency by providing the surgical team with centralized control of endoscopic and other medical devices from multiple locations inside the operating room using touch panels and voice commands.
Smith & Nephewï¿½s Image Management System acquires digital images and video in standard formats and prints with plain paper for high-quality documentation. Images and video are exported via Ethernet and can be stored in a network folder, a PACS and/or the facilityï¿½s EMR system.
