Trumpf TruSystem 7000dV unveiled
The Trumpf TruSystem 7000dV
One of the main design aims behind the Trumpf TruSystem 7000 operating table was to ensure its reliable performance in an unprecedented range of motion and articulation.
This has resulted in a universal table that not only meets the majority of clinical needs, but one that also provides a sound foundation for specialisation.
The latest addition to the range, the Trumpf TruSystem 7000dV, exemplifies this potential and brings all the benefits of Trumpf operating table design to robot-assisted and minimally-invasive surgery.
Since the introduction of its TruSystem 7000, Trumpf Medical Systems has worked with Intuitive Surgical, the company whose pioneering work in minimally-invasive surgery led to the development of its renowned da Vinci robotic systems. The result of this association is the TruSystem 7000dV, a table that meets the specific needs of this increasingly-popular form of surgery.
There are several specific risks associated with minimally-invasive surgery and one of those is nerve injury and post-operative pain caused by inaccurate patient positioning.The inability of traditional tables to lower sufficiently to allow all equipment to be accommodated above the surgical site was identified as a significant contributor to this problem. So too was the lack of a steep Trendelenburg position to provide optimum anatomical access.
The TruSystem 7000dV allows an extra-low operating height of 580mm and an extreme range of Trendelenburg positions – up to 45 degrees for all patient weights up to 450kg – for superior anatomical access. This is also complemented by the table’s Y-shaped base that provides an exact fit with the da Vinci Si patient side kart.
This totally safe, but extreme positioning is complemented by Iso Center Motion that combines Trendelenburg movement and longitudinal slide into one. This moves the patient around a virtual pivot point maintaining a static surgical site and also saves time during patient repositioning during robot assisted surgery. The table top itself is radiolucent without any restrictions. The longitudinal shift of 457mm provides a large 360° scanning area for 3D imaging, supporting surgical procedures.
There is no guesswork needed on the degrees of articulation either as the remote control gives a real-time read out of the current status of each table position. It also guides the user through the process of achieving the desired position through intuitive feedback.
