by @ 8:51 am. Filed under ALL, BioEngineering, Electronics Design
 

WEDNESDAY June 19, 2013
SCV Engineering in Medicine and Biology
Subject: The Magellan Robotic Catheter System
Speaker: Frank Macnamara, VP, Hansen Medical Inc.
Time: Optional dinner at Stanford Hospital Cafeteria, 6:15 PM (no host, no reservations); Presentation at 7:30 PM
Cost: none
Place: Room M-114, Stanford University Medical School, Stanford
RSVP: not required

This talk will focus on the design and performance of the Magellan Robotic System, an intravascular catheter system that received FDA clearance in June 2012.  The Magellan System is the successor to the company’s Sensei X Robotic System, which has been used on more than 10,000 patients.  The talk will begin with an overview of Hansen Medical Inc, a Mountain View company founded in 2002.  It will then provide a background on flexible robotics, followed by a detailed presentation of the Magellan Robotic System.  After a clinical review of intravascular cases to date, it will offer observations about the future of intravascular robotics.
