Ion Endoluminal System

Medical device

Intuitive

The incidence of lung cancer is on the rise around the world. Today, when a physician finds a small lesion on a patient’s lung, they have few options to perform a biopsy for tissue diagnosis. US manufacturer Intuitive recognized that innovation was needed to provide a minimally invasive solution with higher yield than previous approaches. The Ion endoluminal system is a new robotic platform for minimally invasive biopsy deep in the peripheral lung. The system features an ultra-thin, human-controlled robotic catheter that allows physicians to navigate into hard-to-reach airways with unprecedented stability and precision.

iF GOLD STATEMENT

Intuitive's design team developed this new robotic platform for minimally invasive biopsy with much dedication to details. It offers a seamless integration into a complex cleanical workflow, with its simple design language for a highly technical medical world solution. The details have a clean professional design language - well done.
