Having obtained approval from the FDA in September for its 3DHD Vision System, Viking Systems has now also received CE certification in Europe.
The system delivers “state-of-the-art 3D vision with natural depth perception and tactile sensation” for laparoscopic and other minimally invasive procedures.
The system is the first of its kind where the surgeon, without a heads-up display or any other special adjustments, can comfortably wear light-weight glasses and operate in a 3D environment. The 3DHD is currently on show at MEDICA 2010 in Dusseldorf, Germany.
