Imris has entered into a global partnership with Karl Storz to merge Visius surgical theatre system integration with OR1 technology from Karl Storz. Imris' intraoperative vision in specialised hybrid operating rooms will be combined with Karl Storz's range of state-of-the-art networking technologies to provide efficient image and data management, facilitate workflow and enhance safety in the intraoperative imaging environment that is the Visius surgical theatre.
Connectivity, image management workflow, patient safety applications, and service are the primary features and benefits of this collaboration. Karl Storz OR1 operating rooms combine digital technologies that provide intuitive centralised control of systems and equipment within the room. Digital control systems integrate an array of key OR devices and environmental components. These capabilities will combine with Imris' integration elements of ScanCheck, collision detection systems and system interlocks for safe control of on-demand imaging movement and technology for eliminating RF interference during imaging.
Every Visius surgical theatre featuring OR1 provides cutting-edge network capabilities to aid communication, such as video streaming, documentation and archiving, as well as video on-demand for educational purposes.
