The XACT ACE™ Robotic system (ACE) provides hands-free targeting with a high level of accuracy and control, to enable performing a wide variety of percutaneous procedures, including biopsies, ablations, and site-specific drug delivery. By combining image-based planning and navigation with robotic instrument insertion and non-linear steering capabilities, ACE enables users to achieve instrument tip-to-target average accuracy of < 3mm. ACE’s non-linear steering capabilities enable radiologists to access hard-to-reach locations even if the target moves during the procedure due to instrument insertion or patient movement or breathing.
By optimizing accuracy, ACE can lead to more predictable and consistent procedure times and enhanced patient outcomes. With its highly consistent and reproducible one-insertion-to-target performance, ACE minimizes the need for and incidence of instrument reinsertions, reducing procedure complexities, delays and duration. In clinical studies, ACE’s hands-free robotic skin to target time was < 8.5 minutes on average. This enables predictable procedure duration that enhances the utilization of healthcare facilities and staff.
The XACT ACE™ Robotic System has a small footprint, it is compact and portable and enables care providers to efficiently treat a board range of patient care needs across multiple areas of the body. ACE can be set up for use with patients within minutes and does not require a specialized, dedicated operating space. ACE is capable of delivering various instruments to a desired target for a wide variety of percutaneous procedures, such as ablation, biopsy and drug delivery, and is designed to be compatible with multiple imaging modalities.
Lahey Hospital & Medical Center (LHMC) and Sarasota Interventional Radiology (SIR) participated in trial to evaluate safety and accuracy of percutaneous procedures in the lung using the XACT ACE™ Robotic System for instrument insertion.
